Welcome to Bristol Child Neuroscience

Bristol CNS is a research group based at the University of Bristol & University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust

We undertake epidemiological research in paediatric neurology. There are several areas of research that we are particularly interested in, for example:

  • Which children are at risk of brain or nervous system disorders?
  • What are the factors that put them at risk?
  • How are things likely to develop?
  • What are the best ways to treat or manage their disorders?


We are the specialist neurology service for the South West of England, providing highly advanced treatments for disorders of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Our expert team provide this specialist service for children of all ages.

We treat the full range of paediatric neurological conditions and have integrated programmes within the department in paediatric epilepsy (including epilepsy surgery), neuromuscular disorders, complex movement / spasticity services and neurorehabilitation.
