Community Neurology Specialist Nurse Team

This service was developed and supported by NHS Oxfordshire in partnership with the Oxford University Hospitals.

There are five Community Neurology Specialist Nurses, each one leading on a particular neurological condition (MS, Parkinson's Disease, Epilepsy and rare neurological conditions).

We work together as a team, to provide advice, guidance and support for people and their families living with long-term neurological conditions, locally, when and where it is needed.

There are some long-term neurological conditions that are supported by other established services. If this applies to you, then we will ensure that we signpost you to the appropriate service.

We work closely with the Oxford University Hospitals based Neurology Specialist Nurses and Neurologists, and we include patients in all aspects of their care.

What we offer

  • Nurse-led clinics around Oxfordshire and South Northamptonshire - to provide sensitive assessment, problem-solving and support. This may include referrals to other services where required.
  • Home visits (where appropriate).
  • Free support, advice and education to community healthcare professionals and other residential and social care providers in the community.
