Our combination of specialist consultants and our wider team (including specialist nurses, physiotherapists and speech & language therapists) in a research-led, state-of-the-art environment makes us one of the best hospitals for private neurosurgery in London and the UK, if not the world. Patients travel from across the globe for treatment with us, based upon the outstanding reputation of our consultants and our record of excellent outcomes post-surgery. In 2020, Newsweek voted the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (sometimes known as Queen Square) as one of the top specialist hospitals in the world.
Our specialist environment means we can offer very complex surgery as a solution for neurological problems, as well as surgical solutions for more common concerns. We offer both conventional surgery and state-of-the art techniques including the gamma knife. We are a tertiary referral centre for neurology patients both nationally and internationally, where patients are sent to us from other hospitals which are unable to offer this level of specialist care.
Our neurosurgeons are considered among the best in their field and have an international reputation as experts in their specialist areas of neurosurgery.
Many of our world-leading neurosurgeons also hold dual academic contracts with University College London (UCL) and are at the cutting edge of translating the latest academic research research into treatment. As a result, our patients are able to receive the very latest treatment options available.
The team at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery also includes specialist nurses, radiographers and anaesthetists who are all highly skilled in the care of patients with neurological conditions. We also have speech and language therapists and physiotherapists who can support you in your post-operative care if you are undergoing neurosurgery.
Your healthcare team will also include those with specialist skills in supporting patients with specific neurological conditions and needs, from epilepsy to stroke recovery. We are also experts in the diagnosis of neurological conditions, and have a specialist neuroscience team, from neuroradiologists to pathologists to neurophysiologists, plus a dedicated neurological intensive care team.
This level of specialism means that you can expect an exceptionally high level of holistic care tailored to support you through your surgery and recovery.
The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, sometimes referred to as Queen Square after its location, has been providing specialist care for people with neurological conditions for nearly 160 years and is one of the leading clinical neuroscience centres in the world.
The hospital underwent a £23m redevelopment programme in 2018 including a brand new medical intensive therapy unit, and two newly rebuilt operating theatres.
The hospital has also recently opened one of the UK’s first high dependency units especially for neurology patients. The ward provides specialist care for neurology patients who are between needing the high level of support in an intensive care unit and moving into a general ward, ensuring our patients are supported properly at every stage in their recovery.
In 2020, Newsweek magazine voted the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery one of the Top 100 specialist hospitals worldwide.
As a private neurosurgery patient you will stay in one of the en suite rooms of the Bloomsbury Private ward which is dedicated to the care of private patients. Our rooms have been designed to offer you a home from home while you recover from your treatment, and our hotel services team are on hand to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery has superb transport links, just a few minutes’ walk from Russell Square tube station (Piccadilly line) and with Euston mainline station just a short journey away.
The hospital is located in leafy Bloomsbury, a quiet location minutes away from the heart of the West End of London.
