UK moves to support neurological care standards:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's national service framework (NSF) for long-term conditions, which sets out the standards announced in February 2001 for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions, has moved a step closer to implementation. Last week, the Department of Health appointed the chair and deputy chair of its external reference group (ERG). These are Diana Whitworth, chief executive of Carers UK, and Professor Lynne Turner-Stokes, of King's College Hospital, London. They will be supported by Andy McKeon, director of Policy and Planning at the Department of Health. The ERG's remit, announced in June 2002, includes providing advice on how best to implement standards and to ensure adequate provision of equipment in the community. The group's membership will be announced soon.
