It is essential that a clear referral pathway and funding arrangement is in place to ensure that patients who have had polio and are now experiencing new and/or deteriorating symptoms of late effects polio (LEOP) or post-polio syndrome (PPS), receive specialist assessment, diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner to prevent avoidable functional deterioration and disability.
