This report by the Welsh Neuroscience Expert Group Care Pathways sub-group outlines a process for the development of care pathways to support children, young people and adults with long term neurological conditions. The aim of these pathways is to help people with long term neurological conditions manage their condition, maintain independence and achieve the best possible quality of life through an integrated process of education, information sharing, assessment, care planning and service delivery. It is suggested that this would be as delineated in the National Service Framework for Long Term Conditions for England. Areas addressed are: early recognition, diagnosis and treatment; acute care; early specialist rehabilitation; community and longer term rehabilitation; transitions; vocational and educational rehabilitation; equipment and accommodation; personal care and support for the sufferer, their families and carers; palliative care, care within hospital and other health or social care settings; quality assurance, audit and development.
