Neurology

Neurology deals with diseases of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, nerve, muscle and their connections. Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) is a regional centre providing treatment for Birmingham, the West Midlands and surrounding areas.

In addition to our general neurological and neurosurgical services, the department provides 24-hour emergency care and, as QEHB is a major trauma centre, our specialists work as part of a multidisciplinary team delivering urgent and complex neuro-trauma care to those suffering brain or spinal injury.

The regional centre has eight full-time consultant neurologists and more than 20 other consultants, plus clinical nurse specialists.

Regular specialist clinics are undertaken in several sub-specialty areas including:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • epilepsy
  • multiple sclerosis
  • motor neurone disease
  • botulinum toxin
  • neuromuscular diseases
  • stroke
  • neuroimmunology
  • neuro-rehabilitation
  • headaches

The department also has a strong track record of world-class research with close links to the University of Birmingham.
