There are an estimated one million people in Scotland live with a neurological condition that has a significant impact on their lives. This is an exciting time for neurological services, with the publication of Scotland’s first ever Framework for Action for Neurological Services, and updated General Standards for Neurological Care and Support The treatment landscape is also changing for many conditions. We believe that during the next decade there is potential to see significant improvement in services for people living with neurological conditions.

In partnership with our members we inform policy, raise awareness and support improvements in services. We aim to make sure that the experiences of people with neurological conditions - and those around them - are recognised.
