The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), sometimes referred to as Queen Square after its location, has been providing care for people with neurological conditions for nearly 160 years and is one of the leading clinical neuroscience centres in the world. The hospital provides comprehensive services for the diagnosis, treatment and care of all conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system and muscles in state-of-the-art facilities. 

Together with its neighbour, the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery is a major international centre for research and training.

We provide inpatient care in a purpose-built private ward with a dedicated specialist nursing team. All our allied health professionals, including occupational therapists and speech and language therapists, are specially trained to support patients with neurological conditions.

In 2020, Newsweek voted the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery one of the top specialist hospitals in the world.
