We treat most neurological conditions with some exceptions. For example, elderly patients who have Parkinson’s disease as well as other medical issues are looked after by our care of the elderly staff. Chronic fatigue syndrome is managed in primary care.
Specialist first seizure/epilepsy clinics are run from Peterborough City Care Centre twice a week on Monday and Wednesday mornings.
