Your consultant may refer you to one of our Consultant Neurophysiologists for an EEG or EMG if you require specialised testing of the electrical functions of your brain, spinal cord and nerves in the limbs and muscles to help identify the site of the neurological disturbance and its likely cause.

Should further treatment be required, the hospital has 2 fully-equipped theatres where surgery can be carried out. There is little or no waiting time for surgery, your treatment can start as soon as you are ready.
