Clinical Lead: Dr Geraint Fuller
Consultant Neurologist, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Gloucester Royal Hospital).
Dr Fuller has worked as a Consultant Neurologist in Gloucester since 1994. He has an interest in general neurology and neurological education. He has been Chair of the Specialty Advisory Committee for Neurology that oversees neurological training in the UK, and was President of the Association of British Neurologists from 2013 to 2015.
Dr Fuller said: “Neurology is a specialty that is changing dramatically and can now provide increasingly effective treatment for many patients with neurological disease. Access to these
treatments across the UK is patchy. The GIRFT project provides an opportunity to improve this so that all patients with neurological disease can receive the most effective and appropriate treatments.”
Senior Clinical Advisor: Professor Adrian Williams
Professor of Neurology, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, and NHSE Chair of the Neurosciences CRG, the National Neurosciences Advisory Group and the West Midlands Senate.
Professor Williams said: “I am delighted to become part of the formidable GIRFT team and look forward to applying its successful techniques to some of the longstanding but solvable problems of timely and equitable access of patients to neurological interventions of value.”
