Its priorities are to: ▸ address health inequalities in England ▸ collect and make publicly available national neurology data, in one place ▸ identify gaps in the data and promote research to address these deficits ▸ improve the quality of commissioning by providing relevant data and evidence ▸ promote research to improve the quality of neurological care throughout England
