The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust



The Neuropsychology service at St James's Hospital offers outpatient specialist neuropsychological assessment and short-term psychological therapy to patients with any neurological or neurosurgical presentation, and to people with medically unexplained neurological-like symptoms. We also offer specialist neuropsychological assessments to patients with complex psychiatric presentations.

We provide inpatient neuropsychological assessment and therapeutic work to patients admitted to the neurorehabilitation ward at Chapel Allerton Hospital.

You can also read our leaflet on Cognitive Assessments provided by the service.
