To elucidate and describe current neuropsychiatry service provision in the UK. A questionnaire was developed and posted to members of the Royal College of Psychiatrists who had expressed an interest in neuropsychiatry. the responses were tabulated and analysed using descriptive statistics and SPSS version 11.0 for Windows. the neuropsychiatry services provided, sources of referrals, setting of the services and funding streams are described.
Out of 251 respondents, 70 reported providing a neuropsychiatry service, 21 having been principally appointed as neuropsychiatrists.
