I should be delighted if you were able to join us for a series of lectures to celebrate the life and work of Professor Neville. 

Brian was appointed the first UK Chair of Paediatric Neurology, coming from Guys Hospital, in 1989. Upon retirement he was also the initial incumbent of the Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy until 2007. On arrival at the Institute he set on an expansion of both the academic and clinical neuroscience departments, responsible for the expansion of development of the epilepsy surgery programme and ultimately the complex epilepsy unit, as well as a combined neurological approach to neurodisability.

Throughout his career, the training and development of juniors in the specialty was key; he contributed on an international level to standardisation of training in paediatric neurology. Above all, he was an extremely caring man, who always thought of the children and their families first and foremost.
