Our neuropathology service plays an important role in patient care by helping to diagnose diseases of the nervous system and monitoring their progression.

This is done by analysing samples and examining biopsy tissue from the muscles, brain and spinal cord.

Working closely with the rest of the neurosciences department, the team help decide the best way to treat and manage patients with a wide range of conditions, including epilepsy, brain and spinal tumours and muscle and nerve disease.

Many of the consultants working in our neuropathology team also play an active role in training junior doctors and carrying out research to help further advance patient care.
