Teenager dies after GP mental health referral is rejected


i work in one CCG where children under 18 have access to walk in clinics, on line services and anger management support, the one next door has nothing apart from cams who reject everything and you have to refer to a private charity for support for teenagers. in the first i can refer or the patient can self refer and parents have access to parenting classes and support, the other i send them to A^E where cams legally have to see them - if i am concerned. the system is broken. so can't wait to leave the NHS.
