Welcome to the Black Country Neurological Alliance

The Black Country Neurological Alliance (BCNA) is an umbrella organisation, led by people who are affected directly or indirectly by a neurological condition.

The Alliance aims to bring the people of the Black Country closer to services available from both statutory and voluntary bodies within the region.

Our vision is that any person affected by a neurological condition, living in the Black Country, will have access to all the resources and support they need to enable them to live an active and fulfilled life. Chairman Peter Cornell says, "Our aim is to promote a better understanding of neurological conditions through the provision of information, by sign posting to support services and influencing local decision makers in order to increase the opportunities for individuals to make informed choices that will enhance their quality of life."

We support all four boroughs, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton, holding various events in each region, such as the Dudley "Cafe Neuro". This is held on the 1st Thursday in each month, from 2pm to 4pm. Click Here for a poster about October and November's Cafe Neuro.

We have also recently had a very sucessful Question Time event in Wolverhamption.

I am sure you are aware of the shortage of Neurological Consultants everywhere. This is something we are very concerned about and have been campaigning on for the last two years. Have a look at this BBC Radio 5 program : http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09gfy3r  It’s an hour long programme with Adrian Goldberg. It refers to a report from the National Neurological Alliance which came out earlier this year and can be downloaded from  here.

We welcome new supporters and if you would like to become a Neuro Supporter, we would love to hear from you. More information is available on our News Page or you can just get in touch with us.
