We are happy to help with enquiries, either in the library, by post, phone or e-mail. Unfortunately, we are unable to deal with specific medical queries from members of the public. However, Library staff have compiled and maintain a Patient Support Resource, a listing of support groups and charities for various neurological conditions.
