I was browsing the internet and came across a great resource for people who would be looking for their nearest and best neurology hospital in the UK. This neurology hospital map is for the whole of the United Kingdom including Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland neurological hospitals are also included in the hospital list by the Brain and Spine foundation.
If, for example, you are looking for a neurologist for a diagnosis, for further special investigations, or a neurosurgeon for spinal disc surgery then this map of the different neurological centres closet to you. I also have lots of info on the best London hospitals dealing with nerve problems.

National Hospital For Neurology and Neurosurgery
The NHNN or National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery is based in Central London. The NHNN is claimed to be the largest nerve hospital in the UK. Below you can see the various consultants at the hospital, physical address, telephone number and visitor visiting hours.
You can be referred to NHNN. As a patient, government policy allows you to make decisions about your healthcare.
