    About

    Headache, dizziness and sensory disturbance are all common neurological conditions that are disturbing and can be disabling. Dr Ben Turner is a Consultant Neurologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer with a wealth of experience in the full range of neurological conditions with a particular interest in headache, dizziness and multiple sclerosis.

    The key to good management of all medical conditions is to ‘nail’ the diagnosis and then identify treatable causes. Common symptoms such as ‘headache’ and ‘vertigo’ are often incorrectly diagnosed and the wrong treatments recommended. Dr Ben Turner can provide prompt assessment, investigation and interventions where required.

    Dr Ben Turner’s NHS post is as Senior Consultant Neurologist at Barts Health NHS Trust and as Honorary Senior Lecturer continues to be actively involved in research for MS and headache. In addition, as Training Programme Director for Neurology he manages the training of future Consultant Neurologists. At HCA Shard and London Brdige he is Senior Neurology Consultant and Network lead for Neurology. 

    In addition to his work in the UK, Dr Turner has also worked as a visiting doctor in Kuwait, UAE and Jordan. He has also given lectures on Multiple Sclerosis in various cities, including Tehran and Beirut, where the disease is prevalent.
