The Primary Care and Community Neurology Society is a growing organisation of likeminded healthcare professionals, and partnering organisations including companies and charities who all share a desire to drive up the standard of services to improve neurology care across primary care and the wider neurology community
P-CNS has become the leading voice for supporting the connecting up of neurology care between Primary Care and the wider neurology community
The P-CNS’s vision is for sustainable provision of consistent and high quality neurological care and education services across primary care, connecting primary care to neurology services, based in the community.
The P-CNS’s mission is to:
- Stimulate and develop connections to strengthen the neurology community
- Support the provision and signposting of high quality education and information services in order to enhance the delivery of care to people with neurological conditions.
- Recognise the patient’s voice and the industry as important partners of the neurology community
- Support improved access to more community-based neurology services
in order to enhance the delivery and quality of care to people with suspected and confirmed neurological conditions and optimise their quality of life.
The P-CNS works in partnership with professional and patient organisations to support the provision of neurology education to healthcare professionals at the frontline of providing neurology care in the community. We areespecially keen to support GPs, wishing to focus on improving their knowledge of neurological conditions in order to optimiseaccess to expert neurology services.
Launched in April 2005 and now with nearly 1600 professionals (from across the UK and abroad) registered with the Society, the P-CNS has become the leading voice for supporting neurology care in Primary Care and is looking to develop the neurology community.
