BAW Brain Awareness Week

New Patient Experience survey report published

The Neurological Alliance has published the new patient experience survey report “Falling Short – How has neurology patient experience changed since 2014?

The full report is available

This is a follow up to the “Invisible patients” report published by the Alliance two years ago. The headline findings show that patient experience has become worse since 2014 across all key measures, including time taken to diagnosis, access to specialists and experience of on-going care.

This is, however, balanced by the encouraging signs for neurology in terms of emerging new national initiatives.  The report calls for all parts of the health system to work together to ensure that by 2018 we can report a turnaround in patients experience, with all people with neurological conditions accessing the care they need and deserve.
