We're waiting for Aarthi Ravi to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department of Health,

Under FOI, I would be interested to get statistical data on GP surgeries across Staffordshire (East Staffordshire CCG, North Staffordshire CCG, South East Staffordshire and Seisdon CCG, Cannock Chase CCG, Stafford and Surrounds and Stoke-on-Trent CCG) regarding the neurological patients they see, and how many get referred on to a neurologist. The specific data I am looking for are:

1. How many patients are referred to a neurologist and/or neurological services in the last 12 months?

2. How many times on average have patients presented to a GP with neurology related symptoms before being referred to a neurologist?

3. How many patients that have been referred to a neurologist have had a follow up appointment with the GP?

Yours faithfully,
Aarthi Ravi
