Support is provided to primary health and community based care providers.

The service is supported by three neurologists, one registrar and one senior house officer, three neurophysiology technicians, one neurology nurse, and efficient secretarial and administration support. The department offers regular meetings with Neuroradiology and Neurosurgery, as well as teaching, research, and learning opportunities. It also features an active MS treatment centre including the most modern infusion therapies, regular Motor Neuron Disease MDT meetings, TIA clinic slots, and an active Botulinum Toxin Clinic.
