Conditions treated by the Neurology department

The Neurology Department provides a specialist (tertiary) service for the diagnosis and treatment of children with neurological disorders, who are already under the care of a paediatrician or other paediatric specialist.

This means medical opinions, investigations and treatments which, because of their unusual or specialised nature, cannot be provided by a district hospital or community paediatric service (ie secondary level services).

The service is provided for children with the following disorders:

  • neuropsychiatric disorders
  • complex neurodevelopmental disorders (for diagnostic evaluation)
