Paediatric Neurology

The Paediatric Neurology service is based in Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children (Children’s Hospital) and delivers outreach clinics across Northern Ireland.

The service covers all aspects of Paediatric Neurology, including:

  • Epilepsy
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Neurometabolic disorders
  • Demyelinating disorders
  • Brain tumours
  • Stroke

There are currently three acute neurologists and one consultant in Neurodisability in this service who are supported by a number of Allied Health Professionals including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, clinical and neuropsychologists and social workers. There is close co-operation with other specialities in Belfast Trust as well as with paediatricians in hospitals throughout Northern Ireland.

Some children are referred to Britain for further intervention, including consideration for epilepsy surgery.
