I am the Lead for the Neurology service at Darent Valley Hospital, working with my five other neurology colleagues. The department provides general neurology diagnostic clinics as well as a number of specialist clinics. My particular specialty clinic is epilepsy. My epilepsy clinics are supported by the epilepsy specialist nursing service based in the Kent Community Trust. The epilepsy specialist clinic is held on a Wednesday morning. I have links with King’s College Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
