About us

The National Brain Appeal raises funds to invest in pioneering research, innovative treatments, and world-class facilities to transform the lives of people living with brain conditions. Most of our investment is channelled through our relationship with Queen Square, but our impact is felt throughout the UK and the rest of the world.

Wherever you live in the UK, if you are diagnosed with a neurological or neuromuscular condition you may be referred to Queen Square for treatment. In addition, the treatment you receive at your local hospital is likely to have been developed at Queen Square – and your clinician may well have received training there.

The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, together often referred to as Queen Square, is a world-leading centre for research into the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with neurological and neuromuscular conditions. These include stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. There were more than 280,000 outpatient appointments in 2021/22 with nearly 40% of these patients residing outside of London.
