Noble Solicitors speaks out over £5m young person mental health unit planned in Cornwall
Plans for a specialist in-patient unit in Cornwall for young people with mental health problems have been put forward by county NHS bosses and a local charity.
Under-18s currently have to travel as far away as Birmingham or London for such facilities.
The NHS and charity the Invictus Trust have written a £5m business plan for health commissioners in Bristol.
The proposals are due to be debated next month, the NHS said.
Samantha Martin Trainee Solicitor in the Mental Health Department at Noble Solicitors says “Having a Mental Health unit close to home is imperative to the patient’s recovery. Knowing that your loved ones are not too far away can often ease anxiety and stress for a patient. I would like to wish all the staff at the hospital a successful future. ”
