The London Neuroscience Clinical Network has produced three educational video guides to support GPs with managing three common neurological conditions; headache, dizzy spells and faints, fits and funny turns (Transient Loss of consciousness TLOC).

London has a high rate of neurology referrals and it is estimated 30% of common conditions did not need a neurologist. The main thrust of the project was to raise the neurological profile in a crowded market, improve communication between primary care and neurological services and access to neurological opinion. Each guide is a number of short discussions between a GP and a neurologist covering a key topic.
