Alliance Accuses NHS of Neglecting Patients with Neurological Conditions
Reports put forth by a group of charities have revealed that NHS is failing to assist people suffering from neurological diseases, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.
Neurological Alliance has warned that patients with neurological disorders are not assisted with proper care, hence, raising the chances of such patients to be admitted in the hospital as emergency cases. Further, they are neglected, thus most of them are diagnosed with the condition, reaching an advanced stage. Worse is that these patients are not made much aware of their condition.
Neurological Alliance is a group of more than 70 charities that work for the people, whose nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and nerves, are severely damaged as a result of either illness or injury. Other members of the alliance include even those charities which work for people suffering from motor neurone disease and dystonia.
The alliance report concludes: "The NHS is not taking patients with neurological conditions seriously enough, and warns that the coalition's health reforms will do nothing to help them".
Further, it has been highlighted that policy levers are not being made to emphasize on the deteriorating condition of services provided by neurological department. It has been claimed that five of the six levers are not being deployed to improve the efficiency of the services provided.
