We are using the term 'complex
neurodisability' to describe patient groups who present with
multiple and complex neuropsychiatric, neurological and
neurodevelopmental disorders, presenting with co-morbid conditions
such as substance misuse disorders, psychotic illness, epilepsy,
tic disorders, ADHD etc.
We frequently see these patients in different
hospital and prison settings and are able to identify them as a
very vulnerable and complex patient population group. However, as
the pathology and needs profile of these patients do not neatly fit
into general and specialist psychiatric services provision, it is
often very difficult to identify appropriate services and care
delivery pathways. In the absence of structured service pathways
for patients and structured training opportunities for professional
staff groups, this patient group remains poorly served.
