Information is not available in the format requested.

On 31 March 2017, NHS England announced the next steps to ensure children and young people do not have to travel far from home for mental health care. As well as funding between 150 and 180 new beds, we are increasing the availability of services in the community to ensure the right beds are in the right place. This includes a programme of work to improve timely treatments in the community for those needing urgent or emergency assessment as well as the development of, and recruitment for, community eating disorder services.
