Inadequate neurology services undermine patient care in the UK

“Neurology for the masses” announced The BMJ’s then editor, Richard Smith, in 1999.1 Old stereotypes may associate neurology with rare syndromes and a fondness for diagnosis not treatment, he went on, but it is also a specialty of common illnesses such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. He might also have mentioned that neurological symptoms include some of the commonest complaints such as headache and fatigue. Sixteen years on and despite a doubling of consultants, a damning parliamentary report,2 thrombolysis for stroke, and an awareness of increasing neurodegenerative disease only people living in select areas, or able to travel, will encounter a neurologist. The Neurological Alliance, a patients’ organisation in England, reports that 31% of patients had to see their primary care doctor five or more times, and 40% waited more than 12 months with symptoms before seeing one.3 The UK is the only developed nation with this problem. We have one neurologist per 90 000 people4; the European average is one per 15 000,5 and in the United States concern has been expressed that one per 19 000 isn’t enough.6

A 56 year old woman with syncope, weakness, and refractory hypotension

A 56 year old woman with hypothyroidism after total thyroidectomy presented to the emergency department after an episode of near syncope. When she arrived she had hypotension and atrial fibrillation, with a rapid ventricular response. She reported a history of progressive weakness, weight loss, polyuria, polydipsia, anorexia, and fatigue. Urine analysis was positive for leucocyte esterase and pyuria. She was admitted to the intensive care unit with a diagnosis of severe sepsis of urinary source and atrial fibrillation with a rapid ventricular response. After aggressive fluid resuscitation and the administration of intravenous antibiotics, her heart spontaneously converted to a normal rhythm and she appeared well perfused but remained hypotensive. Review of her medical record showed that her therapeutic thyroxine replacement had recently been decreased because of low thyrotrophin. On perusal of her records from an another facility it was noted that she had undergone pituitary mass resection and irradiation 20 years earlier.
