Suffering from a condition that is affecting your brain functions is never easy. Whether you’re already diagnosed, or you suspect there is something wrong with your brain and nervous system, you need to have the right neurologist. Although the NHS is a great service, they have an overwhelming number of patients. With a condition as serious as issues with your nervous system, we need to work fast to control the symptoms. Therefore, going to a private, highly qualified consultant might be more suitable for you. But how do you go about finding a consultant neurologist in London?
You’ve got to look for neurologists with experience. That means they’ve got to have experience in neurology – not just medicine! You may think to go to a GP, and although they are highly professional and qualified, neurologists know the symptoms inside and out. They have seen it all!

Dr Paviour is the clinic lead for Movement Disorders at the Atkinson Morley Regional Neurosciences Centre. He regularly manages patients neurological disorders and has experience with neurological disorders in pregnancy.
Of course, the location is also really important. Often private GP’s will see patients with potentially major disorders and will refer them to a hospital. Some consultant neurologists, even private ones, are located in a hospital. This makes them easy to find – hospitals are signposted. They will have an office in a clinic, but if they’re associated with hospitals, they’ll have a connection with other expert doctors that can help.
For example, Dr Paviour is located in four different locations. Parkside Hospital in Wimbledon, St Anthony’s Hospital in Cheam, HCA Sydney Street, Chelsea and The London Clinic near Regents Park.
In a typical consultation, you will be asked about the nature of the main symptoms you are experiencing. Towards the end of the initial consultation, the neurologist will explain what they feel the problem is. Following that, they will investigate further by booking in imaging studies such as MRI or CT scan.
