CoroNerve: A UK NeuroCOVID Registry

There is increasing interest in the neurological associations and complications with COVID-19. There is now, in many countries, a need to create a neuroCOVID registry.
In the UK, this process has involved the Association of British Neurologists. The aim is for people who are directly caring for these patients to have a high index of suspicion for neurological complications and refer patients to their local neurologists, who can notify the ABN registry site.


Trainee Hub

NACCS now has an area of the website dedicated to trainees, which can be found here alongside the trainee handbook focusing on training in neuroanaesthesia.
