Our Helpline team provides tailored information and specialist support for anyone affected by a neurological problem. You can either talk to us or email us for information and support.
About our service
Our helpline is confidential – If you don’t want to say who you are, that’s no problem.
If you are concerned about a neurological problem or have concerns about a member of your family or a friend – we’re here to support you.
We also support health professionals in their work, answering questions and signposting to patient services.
People call us for many reasons - some people call for practical or emotional support, others have specific clinical queries, and some people just want to talk.
We believe no question is a silly question – whatever your question or concern, please just ask us.
We can also point you in the right direction and signpost you to other sources of support and help.
Some of the common subjects we talk about
Tests and investigations
Managing long term conditions
The emotional impact of a diagnosis, treatment or living with a long term condition
Helping you make sense of medical information and what might happen next
Helping you get questions together to ask at your next GP or hospital appointment
