England’s Compendium of Neurology Data
The Health and Social Care Information Center, part of England’s National Health Service, released its Compendium of Neurology Data last week. The compendium brings together existing information on the number of neurologists, prescriptions for treating neurological illness, related hospital admissions, outcomes data, and other information. It represents the first attempt to collect overall data about neurology services in England. The National Health Service hopes the data will help it improve quality and access across neurology services in the country. All of the data sources, which cover 2012-2013, are available for download in either CSV or Excel spreadsheet formats.
