New Neurological Alliance report examines the issues faced by those living with a neurological condition and mental health condition

Myaware has teamed up with The Neurological Alliance on calls to get the recommendations from their new report looking at the mental health needs of those with neurological conditions implemented. Published today, Parity of esteem for people affected by neurological conditions gives four headline recommendations, alongside some actions needed to make each of them a reality:

  • Clarify commissioning responsibilities for neurology and mental healt
  • Standardise NICE guidance relating to neurological conditions to address emotional, cognitive and mental health needs
  • Invest in specialists and specialist training
  • Improve access to information, care planning and coordination of care for neurology patients

Parity of esteem for people affected by neurological conditions: meeting the emotional, cognitive and mental health needs of neurology patients is now available on the Neurological Alliance website: http://bit.ly/MH4neuro
