To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether he will accept all the recommendations of the National Audit Office’s report entitled Improving children and young people’s mental health services, published in October 2018.
26 October 2018
We welcome the National Audit Office’s focus on the important area of children and young people’s mental health services. We are going above and beyond many of the original recommendations set out in Future in Mind, for example, in improving support and access to services in schools through the recent Green Paper. We have also set ambitious targets on access, which we are on track to meet.
The National Health Service will also be considering what more it can do to improve children and young people’s mental health through the Long-Term Plan for the NHS.
