Greg demands urgent action on young people's mental health services

Greg has written to Kent County Council's Health Overview & Scrutiny Committee asking it to use its powers to investigate serious problems with the Children & Young People's Mental Health Service.

Greg said:

"Six years ago I raised alarm bells about young people having to wait an unacceptably long time to get the treatment they needed for mental health difficulties and the distressing impact this was having on families. Since then, two different NHS Trusts have been appointed to run this service and still there are problems. Now the information that we are being provided on waiting times is so poor that we can't assess whether the service is running well or not. We need to have the confidence and visibility that things are improving which is why I have asked this powerful health committee to question how this situation has arisen and to require the necessary information to be provided."
