National Neurology Advisory Group Update November 2013

The Annual Report 2013, is now in the process of being written. Consultation with NNAG members on the Draft will take place in late November 2013 and the report will go to design and print in December 2013.

The Operational Management Group and its Work task areas have been busy over the summer as work plans have been developed. A Learning and Sharing Event will take place the week beginning the 17 February 2014. The event will launch the Annual Report 2013; share learning and good practice models from the work carried out since July 2012; have table workshops looking at the proposed work for 2014 as outlined in the Annual Report 2013 and seek to promote conversation between all those involved in neurological health care in Scotland to encourage shared learning and development to improve services for all.

Work will also be undertaken to examine the Clinical Standards in relation to Functional Symptoms. Consideration will be given to whether or not they measure what they are supposed to. Other key areas of work include:

· Data and Audit which will include two pilot studies in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (inpatients) and NHS Forth Valley (outpatients)

· A 2nd Patient Experience Survey it has been agreed that the development of a 2nd survey should go ahead

· NHS Boards Clinical Standards Improvement Plan Mid Year Review, with results published in the annual review

· A workforce Planning tool for measuring staff risk has been developed by Workforce planning in South East and Tayside (SEAT). There is work in progress to plan how this will be rolled out and implemented across all NHS Boards Neurology Departments/Services in Scotland.
