Many thanks go out to them both for their contributions as trustees of the Alliance and we look forward to continuing to work with them in other capacities in the future.

Members’ meeting

Our members’ meeting brought together Chief Executives, regional representatives, service users and policy, public affairs and communication leads and corporate representatives from across our membership to reflect on the neurological community’s collective experience of seeking to improve services and outcomes in the reformed health and social care system.

The meeting will acted as a forum for attendees to:

• enhance their understanding of the key trends and debates influencing the health and social care policy agenda;
• hear from the new National Clinical Director for neurological conditions, Dr David Bateman, on his role, work to date and vision for the future of neurological services and direct questions to him and other panelists;
• consider the challenges and opportunities that different parts of the neurological community are facing in the new NHS and social care landscape;
• explore potential solutions to the problems that we share.
