About Neurology

A neurologist is a medically qualified doctor dealing with disorders of the nervous system.

This includes the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease that involves the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems.

Neurologists also manage conditions that affect the coverings of the brain (the meninges), the blood supply of the nervous system and muscles (as these are controlled by the nervous system).
Neurologists in the UK often develop an interest in particular neurological disorders, such as dementia, movement disorders, headaches, epilepsy, sleep disorders, chronic pain management,  or neuromuscular diseases, however all neurologists in the UK on the GMC specialist register for neurology will have had training in of these areas.

Other common consultations might be for symptoms including loss of consciousness or awareness (typically fits or faints in neurology clinics) numbness, weakness, unsteadiness, tremors and abnormal movements as well as memory disorders.

When surgical intervention is required, the neurologist may refer the patient to a neurosurgeon.
