Neurological Conditions

Neurological Conditions Implementation Group

The Neurological Conditions Implementation Group was set up  to drive forward efforts to improve care and services for people with neurological conditions in Wales. 

We bring together health boards, the Welsh Ambulance Trust, the third sector, primary care, secondary care, government and managers to oversee the National Delivery Plan and support health boards and partners to deliver their local plans. 

We also work closely with the Stroke Implementation Group, providing joint funding to expand neurorehabilitation services and expertise across Wales.

Neurological conditions are caused by damage to the nervous system as a result of illness or injury. There are an estimated 100,000 people living with a neurological condition in Wales, and around 2,500 new diagnoses every year.  

There are more than 250 recognised neurological conditions. The most common conditions include multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy and Acquired Brain Injury.
