National Health Service providers may employ neuromuscular care advisers where it benefits patients, such decisions are a local matter.

NHS England is responsible for commissioning specialised neurological services, including services for patients with neuromuscular disorders. NHS England has published a service specification for neurological care that sets out what providers must have in place to offer evidence-based, safe and effective services.
