This leaflet answers common questions about the community neurological conditions management team. If you would like further information, or have any worries, please do not hesitate to ask your nurse or doctor.
The community neurological conditions management team (CNCMT) is based at the Royal Free London Neurological Rehabilitation Centre (NRC). The NRC is a rehabilitation service
for Barnet residents that provides specialist in-patient, out- patient, and community services for adults with a neurological condition.
We accept referrals for patients who:
- Are Barnet residents with a GP in one of the North Central London Boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, and Islington) and are 18 years or over
- Have provided consent for referral.
- Have a neurological condition. For example: multiple sclerosis (MS), motor neurone disease, cerebral palsy, head injury, spinal cord injury, ataxia.
- Require assessment and/or intervention.
- Require monitoring via the long-term conditions (LTC) register.
We do not see people who have had a stroke or Parkinson’s disease (unless for vocational rehabilitation).
We can consider out-of-area referrals in negotiation with local services and local commissioners. Referrals can be made by any health and social care professional. Once known to the team, individuals may self-refer into the service if they require further intervention.
The care we provide
We aim to work together to support individuals to manage their neurological condition. We provide a range of therapy intervention programmes that are tailored to each patient.
The length and intensity of intervention varies according to the patient’s needs, from a single session to a more intensive episode of multidisciplinary intervention over several weeks. Sessions take place at home, in the local community or at the Royal Free London Neurological Rehabilitation Centre.
The long-term conditions register
This is a database of all patients with long-term progressive neurological conditions known to the service. We enter patients’ details onto the database to help support long term monitoring and management.
Individual reviews are scheduled according to need and will be between three to 12 months. Reviews may be with one member of the team or within our multidisciplinary review clinic.
- Weekly assessment and intervention clinics.
- Individual out-patient sessions are available with members of the multidisciplinary team.
- Rapid access to the multiple sclerosis clinical nurse specialist.
- Vocational rehabilitation service to support people to access, remain in or return to work following neurological injury or illness.
