The Neurological Alliance | March 2019 | Neuro Numbers
To coincide Brain Awareness Week (11 – 17 March 2019), a new report has been released from the Neurological Alliance. Neuro Numbers indicates that the number of neurological cases are increasing and shows 14. 7 million neurological cases in England; a figure equivalent to 1 in 6 people in the UK living with one or more neurological conditions.
The report unites two sources of data:
- Data that is collected and analysed nationally by public bodies such as NHS England or the Neurology Intelligence Network at Public Health England.
- Prevalence (and, where available, incidence) estimates collated and synthesised by The Neurological Alliance with the support of charities providing support to people with specific neurological conditions.
The Neurological Alliance are calling on the different parts of the health system to work together to address the issues being highlighted by the data. Neuro Numbers highlights that 2019 is set to be a landmark year for our understanding of neurological services, with Getting it Right First Time due to report on neurology in the summer ( Source: The Neurological Alliance).
