An article on the Guardian goes into detail about the review of NHS emergency services and argues that it represents a missed opportunity in creating a specific pathway to help with mental health related issues. It mentions specifically the fact that these problems are particularly damaging in inner-city areas such as those in London.
It makes some interesting points which I’m sure will resonate with some carers in Southwark. Do you think an emergency service for mental health issues would improve things, or do the emergency services already available deal with those with mental health problems in the right way?
