During the Covid-19 outbreak, patients with stroke and neurological conditions may be presenting to you in general practice as they are unsure where to go for support. Please continue to make referrals to the local Community Stroke/Neurology Teams who continue to operate as normal. You can email your referrals, using the appropriate local forms
Advice and guidance is available and encouraged. A Neurology Telephone Support hotline service for GPs, designed to complement advice and guidance on eRS with advice from a senior local neurology consultant, has been set up by Royal Free London for all NCL GPs. The phone advice given will be summarised by the consultant and sent via email to the practice to be uploaded to the patient record. If advice is given that a patient requires a referral the patient should be referred via the usual/current pathway.
