The Clinical Neurophysiology service is based in the Neurology Unit at Ward 205, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. They provide a range of specialist diagnostic tests to patients of all ages in the Grampian Region, including those from Orkney and Shetland.

Most of the patients they see are referred from Neurology, Neurosurgery, Paediatrics and Orthopaedics. The department’s aim is to help confirm a diagnosis and assist with the treatment or management of the patient’s condition.

The North of Scotland adult neuromuscular service is supported by the Scottish Muscle Network. The Scottish Muscle Network (SMN) is a national managed clinical network (NMCN) originally established in 1998 with charitable funding from the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. The SMN is now funded by NHS National Services Division (NSD).
