A neurologist is a medical doctor who does not perform operations but specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of people with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, dystonia and headache.

How do I see a neurologist?

If you are admitted to hospital in an emergency, for example if you have meningitis, you may see a neurologist as part of your tests and investigations on admission.  You may also have follow-up appointments afterwards to check your progress.

If it is not an emergency, and your GP feels your condition needs further investigation by a neurologist, he or she will refer you.

Not every hospital has a neurologist. Occasionally neurologists make regular visits and hold clinics in local hospitals, however, if you require further specialist investigations it is likely you will have to go you nearest neurological unit.
