Going the Distance Report update

Going the Distance

The up-dated version of the Neurological Alliance ‘Going the Distance report’, first published in 2014, will be launched at the Community Neurology 2017 event in June. The NA has teamed up with Sue Ryder for the 2017 version of this report, which will include their analysis of the extent to which neurology is prioritised in the 44 STPs.

Copies of the new Going the Distance reported will be shared with all members next month.

Sue Ryder report on public perception of neurology

Sue Ryder recently published a report examining public attitudes to neurological conditions, noting that 45% of the UK feared getting a neurological disorder the most, compared with 36% who feared getting cancer. The survey also revealed worrying levels of public stigma and bullying towards people with neurological disorders.
