Neurology

The Neurology Department at UHCW has expanded considerably over the last few years in line with the increasing burden of Neurological disease and the number of people in Coventry & Warwickshire living with Neurological Long-Term conditions. We work closely with our colleagues in Neurosurgery, Neuro-Imaging, Neuro-Rehabilitation and Neurophysiology.

As well as providing outpatient and inpatient services at UHCW plus a 24-hour acute on-call service for people with neurological problems, the Neurology department also runs the Trust's Acute Stroke Thrombolysis service.

Neurology consultants and sub-specialty interests

Our department currently has 10 consultant neurologists and one Associate Specialist, all based at UHCW but also providing neurology services to other local hospitals in Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Each consultant runs general neurology clinics as well as a sub-specialty clinic. We also have five neurology Specialty Trainees and four neurology Senior House Officers who help with both in-patient and out-patient care.
