At Spire Edinburgh Hospitals most neurological conditions are managed in the outpatient clinic. Neurological patients often require long-term follow up, due to the nature of their condition and this is an important part of the work carried out at the hospital. Our Consultant neurologists work closely with a wide cross-section of medical specialties and can refer on to these if required. We have built up a great deal of experience in the treatment of neurological conditions and use some of the most modern treatment options available. Recent medical and technological advances (such as imaging techniques) allow specific diagnosis and treatment of the majority of neurological conditions.

  • headaches and facial pain
  • numbness
  • tingling
