Independent Neurology Inquiry


The Independent Neurology Inquiry was announced by the Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health in May 2018. In December 2020, the Health Minister converted the Independent Neurology Inquiry from a non-statutory public inquiry to a statutory public inquiry. 

The Chairman wrote to the Patient Client Council in relation to the Inquiry conversion to ensure that patients are aware of the changes brought about by the conversion and what it means for them.

The report of the Independent Neurology Inquiry was published on the 21 June 2022, and is available to download via their website: Independent Neurology Inquiry

Mr Brett Lockhart QC, the Inquiry Chairperson, delivered a statement on the 21 June 2022: Independent Neurology Inquiry Statement - YouTube
