Changes in personality following TBIs are often more problematic than neurocognitive, functional deficits or even physical disabilities. Dr Grzegorz Grzegorzak, consultant neuropsychiatrist at St Peter’s Hospital, South Wales, explains why taking a neurobehavioural approach to treating TBI can be highly effective.
A new male neuropsychiatric facility was launched in the UK last year, amid a national shortage of such services. Twelve months on, we visited Cygnet St William’s in Darlington to chart the ups and downs of getting the service going. As Andrew Mernin reports, it’s a tale of hard-won relationships, fire-fighting and people power.
Charities are facing the double-edged sword of demand for their services being at an all-time high, while seeing a vast drop in donations as a result of COVID-19. NR Times spoke to the Children’s Trust to find out more.
