What we do
The Neurology Service deals with disorders of the nervous system including multiple sclerosis (MS), epilepsy (fits), Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, peripheral nerve, neuromuscular junction and muscle diseases, motor neurone disease, and common symptoms requiring specialist assessment including weakness, headache, sensory (senses) disturbance and problems with balance and co-ordination.
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.
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.
