Graham Stuart welcomes ‘outstanding’ rating for Humber NHS on learning disabilities
Graham Stuart MP today welcomed the news that Humber NHS Foundation Trust has improved its overall rating to ‘good’ in less than 16 months, according to a new report by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The Trust has improved its safety, effectiveness, responsiveness and leadership while maintaining its ‘good’ standard of care. It has also received an outstanding rating for the responsiveness and care of its wards for people with a learning disability or autism within its community mental health care service.
In relation to mental health, the Beverley and Holderness MP also encouraged local residents to take part in a new Department of Health and Social Care consultation on tackling mental health issues in children and young people.
Graham said: “Improving children and young people’s mental health provision is a priority for the Government and while much progress is being made, as well as unprecedented levels of funding being put in, serious issues remain across the UK – including in my own constituency.
“I therefore encourage people to engage with this consultation on mental health and make their views known on this vital and topical issue.”
