2 in 3 GPs are not capable to commission mental health services as per the coalition government’s plans

July 13, 2010

Mental Health Charity "Rethink" has produced a report which show that:

"The Government’s health white paper expected Monday is set to propose a massive shake up of NHS mental health services, stripping PCTs of the power to commission secondary services and handing it instead to GPs. But mental health charity Rethink discovered that only 31% of GPs feel equipped to take on the role for mental health. While three quarters of GPs say they can take responsibility for diabetes and asthma services, less than a third felt the same for mental health services."
