The Neurological Alliance has submitted a bid to join the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance.
The bid was submitted jointly with the Neurological Alliance pan neurology member, Sue Ryder. This is a new programme to enable the Department of Health, NHS England and Public Health England to work together with voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations to “drive transformation of health and care systems to promote equality and address health inequalities and help people, families and communities to achieve and maintain wellbeing.” The outcome will be reported at end of March.
Based on findings from Carers UK, State of Caring Survey 2016, ‘Missing out: The identification challenge’ research project explores the time it takes for people to recognise they have taken on a caring role, and whether they had missed out on support because they simply didn’t think of themselves as a carer.
Our May meeting will include our AGM and we hope as many members as possible will be able to attend. We run entirely on the good will of people with an interest in neurological conditions and meet 8-10 times a year, mostly open meetings with speakers.
The AGM meeting will include
- Confirmation of minutes of the AGM 2016
- Chair’s annual report
- Accounts 2016-2017
- Formation of committee for 2017-18
If you are interested in joining the committee please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the attached form
This report was written by Parkinson’s UK in association with the Continuing Healthcare Alliance.
It looks into the current state of NHS continuing healthcare in England and whether it’s supporting the people who need it most.
We believe that it isn’t, and we want you to share the report with your local decision makers to improve the system.

The RPS promotes the expertise and clinical knowledge of pharmacists to support people with long term conditions and help them achieve the desired outcomes from their medicines, thereby making more efficient use of National Health Service (NHS) resources.
A new report takes a principle based approach to the management of long term conditions. Focussing on the need to enhance the role of pharmacists as part of a multidisciplinary approach, the report takes into account the main objectives of NHS England’s Five Year Forward View.
The RPS proposes that optimal use of pharmacists can support people with long term conditions to:
- Improve health by maximising pharmacists’ role in health and wellbeing
- Transform care by utilising pharmacists’ skills, expertise and knowledge in medicines and their holistic approach to patient care
- Help to control costs by reducing medicines waste and unplanned admissions to hospital by better use of medicines
