Dr Jules Montague is a consultant neurologist at the Royal Free Hospital, and an honorary consultant neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. She contributes regularly to the print and broadcast media, and she writes for the Guardian and Independent newspapers.
Her newspaper features and radio interviews in recent months have explored brain death and the challenges of predicting survival, Munchausen’s syndrome, medical marijuana, false memories, the science of war, vaccination myths, and keeping NHS funding very far away from quackery. She also has an interest in global health, and is travelling to Beira in Mozambique this year to teach and practice neurology.
