The Department of Clinical Neuroscience – which includes both neurology and neurosurgery – is currently sited at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. The department has three wards, operating theatres, diagnostic services and outpatient clinics. Neurology outpatients are also seen at St John’s Hospital in Livingston, the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Roodlands Hospital and Leith Community Treatment Centre.
Neurosurgery is provided at:
Royal Hospital for Sick Children 9 Sciennes Road Edinburgh EH9 1LF Multimap link to Royal Hospital for Sick Children
The Department of Clinical Neurosciences will make neurology and neurosurgery available to all age groups on a single site, meaning potentially quicker treatment is available. One advantage will be that patients who present to the Emergency Department at Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and who subsequently turn out to need neurosurgery will no longer need to be transferred to the Western General Hospital.
