An MP who underwent life-saving surgery at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) to remove a brain tumour returned to the hospital to pay tribute to staff.

Guy Opperman handed over a cheque for £3,050 to The National Brain Appeal – raised during a sponsored six day walk – to help boost research and diagnosis into a wide range of neurological disorders, including stroke, dementia and brain cancer. The money will help finalise the appeal for the Neuro Imaging Analysis Centre which will be officially opened on 2 May.
