Quotes

"Mental health services are facing a crisis. Although the Government has committed to ensuring that mental health services are given equal priority to physical health services, we are still nowhere near seeing this on the ground. At a time when we need to see funding for mental health trusts increase, a cut of 2.3 per cent in real terms is unacceptable. There is absolutely no room for belt-tightening in mental health services, not least because they have always been chronically underfunded and seen as an easy target for cuts. But right now demand is rising right across the system, from talking therapies to crisis care, and services are creaking under the pressure."
"We run the risk of not developing those with bright futures ahead of them who can contribute and strengthen the economy."
Law Society president Andrew Caplen said: "During our representations with the Ministry of Justice about the process to tender for duty provider contracts, we raised a considerable number of complex issues which are still to be fully resolved. We are pleased therefore that the ministry has taken the sensible step of rescheduling the tender process."
"We welcome the decision of the MR. This is a victory for common sense and for the Law Society. We cooperated throughout this review by providing some of our publicly available research data, and the committee included representatives from the Society. However, we were clear from the start that our data was not obtained for the specific purpose of a review of the Guideline Hourly Rates. We expressed our concerns about both the relevance of the Law Society data being used in this way and the need for robust and relevant evidence."
