Neurological disorders

Neurology deals with any problems affecting the nervous system.

The nervous system is made up of a network of nerves, enabling our brain to coordinate the body’s functions. It works by sending messages from the brain to our muscles and organs. Nerves also let us experience the world through our senses.

Neurological conditions are the leading cause of disability and include everything from a sudden stroke or brain injury, to conditions that come and go like migraines. More complex conditions like dementia and muscular dystrophy usually get worse over time and can make it difficult to live independently.

If you or a loved one needs support, our GPs are here every day of the week.
