1.  Brain & Spine Foundation:

 Is the only UK-wide charity providing information and support for every one of the over 470 neurological disorders which affect 1 in 6 people in the UK. Its expert services are there for people at every stage, from first symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, and in the long term. Neurological conditions and associated treatments are often complex and poorly understood by those affected and their families. Many people wait for a long time for diagnosis while living with on-going symptoms and the anxiety of not knowing what the future holds. The Brain & Spine Foundation exists to provide information, answer questions, reduce anxiety, and to inform choices.

2.  Primary Care & Community Neurology Society

Is a growing organisation of likeminded healthcare professionals, and partnering organisations including companies and charities who all share a desire to drive up the standard of services to improve neurology care across primary care and the wider neurology community.  P-CNS has become the leading voice for supporting the connecting up of neurology care between Primary Care and the wider neurology community. The P-CNS’s vision is for sustainable provision of consistent and high quality neurological care and education services across primary care, connecting primary care to neurology services, based in the community.
