About this service
In the neurology department at the Royal Cornwall Hospital we diagnose and treat all types of conditions involving the central and peripheral nervous system. This includes conditions as wide-ranging as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, strokes and sleep disorders.
Our neurophysiology department provides diagnosis for both adults and children. These investigative procedures may involve an EEG telemetry or peripheral nerve and muscle studies.
Patients who need to stay overnight will stay on the Tintagel ward, where our team of specialist nurses care for patients with acute neurological conditions, as well as patients with rehabilitation needs.
A comprehensive outpatient service for general neurology is available at a number of locations in Cornwall from Bodmin to Penzance. We also run specialist clinics for multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and botulinum toxin for movement disorders.
The Neurophysiology department is the only department of its kind in Cornwall. We investigate the function of the nervous system in order to diagnose and monitor neurological disorders.
We perform a range of investigations, including:
- EEG recording of the brain’s electrical activity
- Video EEG
- Peripheral Neurophysiology
- Visual and Auditory investigations
You can find more information about EEGs on the NHS Choices website.
