Key Activities

Encouraging primary care and community neurology to be more person-centred

The Primary care and Community Neurology Society (P-CNS) has new steering committee members who have shaped our new vision and mission. Our vision, which acknowledges the significance of learning through lived experiences, is to provide sustainable, consistent, and high-quality care and education services that consider and support the individual needs of the person so they can live well in the community with suspected or confirmed neurological conditions.

We are delighted to be making this announcement on World Mental Health Day 2021. To meet our new steering committee members just click here, or click on the “About Us” menu and selecting steering committee.
