Neurophysiology

Current status as of 20 August 2020

We are currently running a limited service, this capacity is reduced to the social distancing regulations in order to continue safe practice.

All urgent referrals will continue to take priority and will be checked and clinically triaged on a case by case basis.

All routine referrals will be clinically triaged and added to the waiting list accordingly. At this stage priority will be given to urgent referrals. Protective Equipment (PPE) will be utilised at all necessary times.

 

Future plans

Ongoing reviews of the service are being undertaken on a regular basis. Whilst the number of patients will be reduced to accommodate social distancing, urgent referrals will continue to be prioritised with the reintroduction of routine activity expected in the near future. The focus will initially be to commence with Electroencephalography (EEGs), as well as the reinstatement of nerve conduction studies.
