Neurological symptoms may be an indication of a purely neurological disorder, or a multi-system disease. They may be self-limiting or more serious and GPs must be able to evaluate each patient and assess their need for further tests or referral.

The management of epilepsy is a key competence for general practice, and all GPs should be competent in the management of neurological emergencies.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.

These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.

Please give feedback below on the usefulness of our curriculum resources.
