The need for neurological and mental health care is rising and new approaches are necessary to deliver at the scale demanded. Delivering this care is especially difficult in our London catchment area because of high rates of co-morbidity, social deprivation and social inequalities. This theme will develop new approaches in two underserved populations in this area: the very old and the young with a dual focus on late-life cognitive impairment and on emotional and behavioural dysregulation seen across psychiatric disorders in young people. This approach is likely to deliver a substantial impact as around 25% of NHS beds are currently occupied by patients living with dementia and by 2040 those affected by dementia will increase to around 1.6 million in the UK.
