The team, headed by consultant neurosurgeon, REVERT Clinical Lead and Deputy Director of the NIHR Brain Injury MedTech Co-operative, Mr Alexis Joannides, consists of a clinical neuropsychologist, a specialist physiotherapist, an advanced nurse specialist, and a service co-ordinator.
Because of the wide range of experienced clinicians involved, patients attending the one-stop clinic quickly and easily get an initial assessment that includes a medical consultation, cognitive evaluation (memory test), and gait assessment (walking test).
Our multidisciplinary clinic will improve patient experience: the one-stop approach will save time and money and reduce the number of hospital visits for patients. It will also provide more in-depth assessment to help us offer tailored care and support to patients with NPH alongside their clinical treatment.
