Press Release   •   Jan 21, 2010 10:27 GMT

“It is vital that services focus on identifying people with mental health problems as early as possible," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Secretary.

Commenting on today’s report on mental health by the health watchdog the Care Quality Commission, Norman Lamb said:

“Labour has failed to make proper improvements to our mental health services after 13 years in Government.

“It is vital that services focus on identifying people with mental health problems as early as possible.

“Priority also needs to be given to ensuring that patients are seen as quickly as possible after they are referred to mental health services.”
