UK national figures - Neurological Alliance:

The best available national statistics are probably those published in a report by the Neurological Alliance in April 2014. The sources of the numbers are all referenced in the public domain and include the NHS, the neurological charities and the government's National Statistics Office (NSO) and Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

You can download the Neurological Alliance's report in PDF form by clicking here.

Costs of neurological conditions

We are collecting statistics for the costs to the NHS, Social Services and families of neurological
conditions.

We know, for example, that in 2009 the costs of health and social care for good quality care in
the last year of life for people with MND were in the region of £200,000 (excluding opportunity
costs, but including all aspects of health and social care).  This is the cost for one person for
just one year, and it does not include the financial losses faced by the family - a truly
astonishing figure!
