‘Inadequate’ children’s mental health hospital ‘put safety of patients at risk’ CQC report finds

Posted: March 25th 2022


Services for children with mental health challenges are rarely discussed. For rural dwellers they are few and far between and we often end up with major dislocation for people wanting to access services and their families.

Serious safety concerns have been raised about a children’s mental health hospital where staff lacked respect for patients, as the provider faces a police investigation into another one of its units.

The concerns about this hospital come as The Independent revealed police have launched an investigation into another mental health unit run by the provider.
