Our regional approach
Our work at local and regional levels
We need to work together to make the local case for better service. The Neurological Alliance is delivering a three year programme to build an England-wide network of Regional Neurological Alliances, which bring together service users and carers, as well as staff and volunteers from the brain and spine charities and a range of health professionals to campaign for better services.
What is a Regional Neurological Alliance?
Regional Neurological Alliances (RNAs) are groups for all those in an area who share a commitment to improving services for people with a neurological condition. They are independent organisations, so they decide their own workplan, but they all share the same vision and objectives as the national Neurological Alliance. Some RNAs cover large geographical areas, such as the whole of greater Manchester for example; others cover a much smaller area.
Members of a Regional Neurological Alliance will typically include service users and carers, and staff and volunteers from member organisations of the Neurological Alliance.

Tools for evaluating regional services
Quality Neurology is an audit and evaluation tool designed by the MS Society, Parkinson’s UK, MND Association and Ataxia UK. It measures how an area’s health and social care services meet national requirements.
More information about Quality Neurology is available from Neurological Commissioning Support.
