During the Covid-19 outbreak, patients with stroke and neurological conditions may be presenting to you in general practices as they are unsure where to go for support. Please continue to make referrals to the local Community Stroke/Neurology Teams who continue to operate as normal. You can email your referrals, using the appropriate local forms, as follows:
Islington Community NeuroRehab Team
t: 020 7527 1547
Neurology Support Hotline for GPs
A Neurology Telephone Support hotline service for GPs, designed to complement advice and guidance on eRS with advice from a senior local neurology consultant, has been set up by Royal Free London for all North Central London GPs (December 2019).
The phone advice given will be summarised by the consultant and sent via email to the practice to be uploaded to the patient record. If advice is given that a patient does require a referral the patient should be referred via the usual/current pathway.
To access the GP Telephone Neurology Support Line (Monday to Friday 11am to 1pm),
t: 07773 583 420 (direct) or
t: Royal Free switchboard 020 7794 0500, ext. 39842 when prompted.
