Rapid Assessment Neurology Unit (RANU)

Kathryn Legg 

Ward Manager
Telephone number: 020 7829 8805

Referrals to the Rapid Assessment Neurology Unit need to come from a hospital or community paediatrician. We are not able to accept referrals directly from parents, or from GPs, as this is a specialist service for children who are already under the care of a paediatric department.
