The patient experience survey will remain open until 17 January. We’re still asking member organisations to promote it across as many communications channels as possible – this is what ensures the best response rates. See more, including comms materials and a survey link, on our webpage on the survey.
The NA team are also in the process of approaching neurology services across England about the roll out of our ‘in clinic’ survey from January. So far the response from clinicians has been very positive. The NA team attended the Association of British Neurologist’s Services Committee meeting where we took the opportunity to seek their support in engaging clinicians.

Arlene Wilkie CEO the Neurological Alliance has written “We would like to remind members that this summer we will be launching the second iteration of our neurological patient experience survey. We intend to launch the survey in June and hope that members will assist in disseminating the survey as widely as possible. Last year’s survey received almost 7,000 responses thanks to the support of our members, and we hope to surpass that this year. We will be in touch over the coming weeks and months with more information. The questions and responses from the 2014 survey are available here.”
This was a vitally important survey giving a wealth of information recounting the pressures experienced by families living with a neurological condition.
