National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery
The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) was the first hospital of its kind in England, being dedicated exclusively to treating the diseases of the nervous system. It is located at Queen Square, London. It is affectionately known as the 'The National', and less correctly as 'Queen Square'.
It is currently part of University College London Hospital NHS Trust. It is associated with the Institute of Neurology (part of University College London), a major research centre, and supports the Assessment Unit at the National Society for Epilepsy Centre at Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire.
The NHNN also runs The National Hospital Development Foundation, a charity dedicated to supporting the Hospital for the funding of equipment, buildings and research.
The hospital was founded in 1859 and originally called The National Hospital for Diseases of the Nervous System including Paralysis and Epilepsy. Great neurologists of the time worked at The National, including John Hughlings Jackson, David Ferrier, MacDonald Critchley, Charles-Édouard Brown-Séquard, William Allen Sturge (discoverer of the Sturge-Weber syndrome), Sir Roger Bannister and many others.
