The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), Queen Square, is the UK's largest dedicated neurological and neurosurgical hospital. It provides comprehensive services for the diagnosis, treatment and care of all conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system and muscles. Together with its neighbour, the UCL Institute of Neurology, it is a major international centre for research and training.
We are investing £23 million to redevelop the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. In 2017, we will have built two new theatres, refurbished four existing theatres and an increased ward capacity and critical care beds.
The redevelopment will allow the NHNN to increase its capacity to deliver the world class care in a modern environment. Over the last few years we have seen an increase in referrals and transfers of patients to our services as well as the concentration of specialist services in a smaller number of centres. These changes mean we need to expand our services to meet the needs of patients.
