The Brain and Spine Foundation was founded 26 years ago by Peter Hamlyn, a Consultant Neurosurgeon and President of the Charity, together with a group of leading neurologists and neurosurgeons. We are the only specialist charity in the UK whose aim is to improve the quality of life of people affected by neurological problems. Whilst neurological conditions are often considered rare, there are, in fact, over 350 different conditions of the brain and spine that together affect more than 12 million people in the UK. In many cases, these conditions have long-term impacts without the prospect of a cure. The simple reality is this: In the next 6 years, there is a 1 in 10 chance of turning to The Brain and Spine Foundation for help.
