First regional Neuroscience Conference in Cumbria

The Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust hosted the first regional Neuroscience Conference in Cumbria on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th March in the Lake District. Led by Dr Jitka Vanderpol, consultant neurologist, one of our members, we were pleased to be represented at the event and a number of our members took presentation stands to highlight their work in the county.

During the first day of the conference, Friday 28th March, there was a formal dinner followed by ‘Reflections of a Northumbrian Neurologist’ by Lord Walton of Detchant; Vice President of Parkinson’s UK, Professor David Hunter on ‘Meeting the Challenge of Long Term Conditions’ in the new NHS and an open discussion forum on current NHS reform, commissioning arrangements and the impact on services.

The focus of the second day, Saturday 29th March, was the diagnosis, management and treatment of MS, Epilepsy, Headache and Parkinson’s Disease and featured both national and local speakers.

This was a good conference and one which we hope will be repeated.
