The Public Health England (PHE) Neurology Intelligence Network (NIN) has published a statistical briefing concerning neurological outpatient activity in England. This concentrates particularly on local CCG services. Quality improvements may be achievable by examining variations in local service provision, variations between local areas in the recorded prevalence of neurological conditions, differences in local capacity for assessing people with neurological problems, and consideration of alternative assessment pathways.
