Mental health recruitment plan comes under fire from leading unions

Ambitious mental health recruitment plan comes under fire

An ambitious recruitment drive for mental health provision in England has come under fire as leading unions say more still needs to be done. 

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt announced his plan to tackle the "historic imbalance" of mental health provision by offering 24/7 services and fully integrated mental and physical healthcare. 

The announcement also revealed plans to treat an additional one million patients by 2020 to 2021, creating thousands of new roles. 

Although the Royal College of Nursing has welcomed the move, it has also warned that the government has a lot of work to do, even just to reach the same level of staffing as in 2010.
