PRESS RELEASE: Mental Health Patients at risk due to lack of funding for repairs and upgrades

Dr Natalie Ashburner responds to a report from NHS Providers stating that patient safety is at risk due to underfunding of Mental Health Trusts. The report which states that “two thirds of NHS mental health trusts will not receive the funding they need to invest in urgent repairs or upgrade their facilities” goes on to say that “many are still being cared for in inappropriate dormitory-style wards.”
