Teenager dies after GP mental health referral is rejected


This is now becoming a ‘pattern’ , no matter what . My worry is people will try to use the new kid on the block namely , GP networks, PCNs , to get them out of jail . Rejection of GP referrals is also a social norm in NHS sleepwalking into more medical disasters at all levels . And I cannot see how Department of Health and Social Care can spin by saying how much money they had ‘invested’ mental health services to have an impact . Mr Hancock , I suppose you wanted to consult all your tech-advisors and AI fanatics to help you out on this one??
