That this House notes that an estimated two million people have a neurological condition, excluding migraine, such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, essential tremor and motor neurone disease; further notes the findings of the National Audit Office report, Services for people with neurological conditions; further notes that neurological healthcare spending increased by 38 per cent. to 2.9 billion between 2006-07 and 2009-10, in addition to 2.4 billion spent on social care; further notesthat significant problems exist in co-ordinating health and social care; further notesthat emergency neurological hospital admissions increased by 32 per cent. between 2004-05 and 2009-10 compared to 17 per cent. for the NHS as a whole; further notesthere are considerable geographical variations in service provision; further notesthat there is no system for monitoring the impact of expenditure on neurology, or for holding commissioners to account for quality of care; and therefore urges the Government to create an outcomes strategy for neurology, overseen by a national clinical director, to address variations in service provision, deliver value for money and ensure that neurological services remain a priority.
