GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES RAPID REVIEW OF INPATIENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES IN ENGLAND


The government has announced a rapid review of inpatient mental health services in England.

It follows calls for an examination of patient safety after a Sky News investigation into alleged failures in the care of adolescents at mental health units run by a single provider - the Huntercombe Group, now part of Active Care Group.


Our investigation raised concerns from more than 50 former patients.

Maria Caulfield, the minister for Mental Health and Women's Health Strategy, said the review will focus on data and evidence available to healthcare services including from families and patients, and how it can be used to identify patient safety risks more effectively.

It will be chaired by Dr Geraldine Strathdee, who is currently running the Essex Mental Health Independent Inquiry into inpatient mental health deaths in Essex between 2000 and 2020. The two inquiries will run separately.
