 The Neurological Alliance in the UK has published the findings of research showing that Children and young people affected by neurological conditions are facing difficulties accessing vital services and support. 

 

Over 600 people throughout the UK responded to the children and young people's survey which was run in partnership with the Neurological Alliances of Scotland and Wales and the Northern Ireland Neurological Charities Alliance. 
 
The results highlight challenges accessing services such as mental health and wellbeing support, as well as a lack of information at diagnosis and difficulties transitioning from children's to adults' services.
 
Key Findings showed that:
-60% of children and young people living with a neurological condition experienced delays to routine appointments with specialists in the last year
 
-Most children with a neurological condition are unable to access the mental wellbeing support they need
 
-Too many children and young people face unacceptable waits to see a specialist or get a diagnosis.
