The British Paediatric Neurology Association is the professional organisation for doctors who specialise in the care of children with neurological disorders. Membership is open to those devoting the majority of their time to paediatric neurology, paediatric neurodisability and allied neurosciences.

The BPNA supports research through its charity Child Brain Research, which funds studies and provides support to doctors working to improve treatments and quality of life for children with neurological conditions. Child Brain Research needs your help to raise money for pilot studies into neurological conditions in children – see how you can help at justgiving.


Over the past eight years BPNA Education has developed short courses in epilepsy, movement disorders and headache in addition to its distance learning course, which covers all aspects of paediatric neurology. All our courses are open to non-members. See ‘Courses & Conferences’ above.

The first BPNA Neonatal Neurology 2-day course for paediatric neurologists, neonatologists, trainees and neonatal nurses is now taking bookings.  The NeoNATE course will be held in Sheffield on 8-9 July 2014. Book now online.


The BPNA’s research arm (UKCNRC, set up in 2008) has changed its name to Child Brain Research!  Support us at justgiving.
