National suspected Cauda Equina Syndrome pathway

Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) is a serious spinal presentation, which, if not diagnosed and treated swiftly, can result in life-changing injury. 23 per cent of litigated claims for spinal surgery in England relate to CES, based on Getting It Right First Time’s (GIRFT's) assessment of litigated claims in England between 2013-15 and 2015-16.

This document, created by NHS England and GIRFT, and the pathway it supports, aims to provide clinicians working in all care settings with the ability to effectively diagnose and care for patients presenting with suspected CES.

See Downloads to access the pathway.
