Abstract

The Healthy Ageing Research Group (HARG) is a group of researchers within the School of Health and Social Care at the University of Lincoln. In September 2017 we were asked by Lincolnshire County Council to undertake an independent health needs assessment for people living with neurological conditions in the county. A health needs assessment is a way in reviewing the current resources available to meeting the needs of a specific population. This report is a summary of the work. Please email Thomas George for the full report (email: tgeorge@lincoln.ac.uk or phone: 01522 837496). The review looked at adults over the age of 18, and young adults moving into adult services. It covered a range of neurological conditions, including stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis, among others. Lincolnshire County Council had previously undertaken a separate review looking at the needs of people with dementia, so dementia was not included within this study.
