Specialist neurological inpatient care is provided on a 20-bedded acute neurology and stroke unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary's (BRI) ward 9. A separate 24-bedded ward at St Luke's Hospital caters for inpatient neurological and stroke rehabilitation.

Outpatient Services

Most outpatient clinics take place at St Luke's Hospital, with some at the BRI and a number of outreach clinics provided at Westwood Park Hospital and Bingley Canalside Surgery.

The department is supported by an excellent imaging service (radiological investigations who deal with x-rays and scans), neurophysiology investigation service, specialist nurses, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and neuropsychology.
