Most patients are seen in the outpatient clinic by a Consultant Neurologist. Intravenous infusions and lumbar punctures may be done in our day units at Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells. Patients with urgent conditions may be admitted to an acute medical ward where neurologists offer a consultation service on most working days. A few patients requiring highly specialist investigations and treatment may be referred to the regional neuroscience centre at King’s College Hospital in London.
