Personal health budgets scheme forces mental health centre closure


I know some people have issues, but could you at least try and keep to relevant moans to the topic? Some of us here sound less than coherent. Is anyone surprised this is happening? CPNs used to provide good support for patients but psychiatrists are forced to discharge them from their case load from management (who are pushed by CCG's contract, who in turn are forced to make efficiency saving by NHSE). Mind you, public of UK had a choice to say "Oi, p!ss off, stop wasting public funds on popularist scheme and use it to make a real change" but didn't. Instead some people bought theatre ticket, trip to Paris, latop etc etc. I don't think people can complain about this either.
