Victor Horsley Ward & Surgical Reception Unit is a joint inpatient/ day surgery service situated on 2nd floor Chandler wing at the National Hospital of Neurology & Neurosurgery (NHNN). Victor Horsley Ward is comprised of 15 inpatient acute neurosurgical beds, predominantly female. These patients can be elective or emergency, mostly being peri-operative. We care for patients that have a vast number of neurosurgical problems, but we regularly see patients going through complex spinal elective operations or injury, patients who have had sustained a sub-arachnoid/ sub-dural haemorrhage, patients being treated/ investigated for hydrocephalus or diseases involving the limbic system.

Due to NHNN being a tertiary referral centre of neurosurgery, we often get patients from all over UK, including the Channel Islands and Malta.

The surgical reception unit consists of a 12 bedded trolley area (6 males and 6 females) caring for the peri-operative patient. This can be day case patients going through neuro-muscular, neuro-vascular and neuro-urology procedures, glycerol injections or carpel tunnel surgery etc. in which the recovery and length of stay in hospital has to be less than 12 hours. We also get patients ready for their complex operations, bring them to theatre, and then they will have an allocated bed post operatively.

Please make sure you are available on the following interview/assessment day:
