Our Department of Neurology provides a wide range of clinics for a variety of different conditions and disorders. These are:
- General neurology
- Stroke and transient ischaemic attacks
- Botulinum toxin therapy for spasticity, dystonia, drooling and migraine
- Parkinson’s and movement disorders (including a nurse-led Parkinson’s clinic).
Our neurology inpatient service is based on Oakdale Ward, where the Stroke Unit and thrombolysis service are also located. Patients requiring specialist neurological rehabilitation may be transferred or directly admitted to the Lascelles Neurorehabilitation Unit, which is located a short distance from Harrogate District Hospital.
Our specialist Parkinson’s nurses work collaboratively with GPs and the consultant neurologists. They also link with the wider multi-disciplinary neurology team, which consists of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and dietitians. The nurses aim to provide an easily accessible service and high quality care for patients and their families.
The Department is located on the second floor, Strayside Wing, Harrogate District Hospital.
Patients are usually referred by their GP. We regret that we are unable to accept self-referrals.
