This section of our website contains a range of information that may be relevant to anyone affected by a neurological problem, and covers the many stages people may be at in their journey - whether it is first seeking a diagnosis, searching for local services, or learning to manage their ongoing symptoms. The information and support featured here includes a map of neurological centres within the UK, questions to ask your doctor, what you can do when you are undiagnosed, articles on managing symptoms such as fatigue and neuropathic pain, as well as health and lifestyle tips to help people improve their wellbeing.
As part of our work, the Brain & Spine Foundation produces and provides accredited fact sheets and booklets on a variety of neurological conditions and problems. These are available to browse online or to download and print. If you prefer, you can order a free hard copy of a booklet from us. Click the link below to view our range of free publications.
