Welcome to Medway Neurological Network Website









Our AIM: To be the voice of all those affected by neurological conditions in Medway - a single point of access 

Our Mission: 

  • To defend and improve the quality of health and social care services available to those with neurological conditions 
  • To raise awareness of neurological conditions in Medway and the support services that are available 
  • To campaign for improved disability services and facilities 
  • To promote and support services/ therapies/ research projects aimed at improving health & wellbeing, e.g. Medway Skylarks  
Our Participants: Currently we have 13 neurological charities and support groups participating in our Network, and we are also fully engaged with 8 major service providers in Medway.  All of our participants are invited to attend our quarterly Steering Group meetings.  For a full list of our participants, and links to their websites, please see our Participants page.

Passing of Prof. Mike Oliver

Medway Neurological Network has just heard the very sad news that Prof. Mike Oliver has passed away - we send our condolences to family aand friends.  Annaa Morell of Kent Disability Forum writes:
It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Professor Mike Oliver. Mike was an absolute titan in our community. A pioneer, a relentless campaigner, and effectively one of the founding fathers of the Social Model of Disability. Greatly respected for his huge intelligence, his straightforwardness, and for many of us in Kent, his presence, he was a mighty force for change. He was loved, and his absence will be felt so keenly, not just in Kent, but globally. Our thoughts and love are with his wife Joy and family at this deeply sad time.
