Mental Health Psychiatrists In Cumbria

EDM number 337 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 09/10/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Health staff and professions and Mental health.

That this House welcomes the 25th World Mental Health Day, the increase in awareness it causes and the great work that has been done in the field of mental health; condemns the recent decision of Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and the county's clinical commissioning groups to not call in NHS trust psychiatrists for Mental Health Act assessments, and to only use their services when a detention in hospital is being considered; believes that this decision reverses vital progress in mental health treatment; notes the harm that this will cause to people who could have to wait longer for diagnosis and treatments placing them at risk; and further condemns the decision as one made for administrative convenience and not for the people who are suffering and using these services.

This motion has been signed by a total of 5 MPs.
