You can be referred to UCLH's National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN). As a patient, government policy allows you to make decisions about your healthcare.

If your GP thinks you need to be referred to see a multiple sclerosis specialist, you can choose any hospital in the country. This means that regardless of where you live, you have the right to be seen at the NHNN.
