In September 2018 we launched an analysis that showed investing in proactive care for people with neurological conditions saves the public purse money.


Most recently, we published a joint report with Hospice UK that shows bereaved people in Scotland are not accessing the support they need. As a result, we are calling on the Scottish Govenment, NHS and integration authorities to take forward our recommendations.

In the run-up to the 2016 Scottish Parliament elections, we revealed that care and support for people with neurological conditions were inadequate and patchy, with some people being inappropriately placed in older people’s care homes.

In 2017, we wanted to see what progress had been made in improving neurological care across Scotland.

We also revealed that many people at the end of life, and their families, have no meaningful care and support overnight and at weekends.


In 2017 we teamed up with the Neurological Alliance to examine the health system in England from the perspective of people with neurological conditions. We found that the system was consistently failing to prioritise their needs, and consistently failing to deliver.

In 2016 we examined ‘out of hours’ end of life support across the country, and found that too many people are still missing out on the support they need and deserve.
