Many children and young people in Wales who are accessing mental health services are still being put at risk, despite action taken to address safety issues.
That's according to a joint review by the Wales Audit Office and Healthcare Inspectorate Wales.
Despite the action taken by NHS Wales to address the safety issues highlighted in 2009, it is clear from today's follow-up report that children and young people accessing mental health services in Wales are still being put at risk. This is completely unacceptable.
Many young people are still admitted inappropriately to adult mental health wards or are placed long distances away from their families and friends, due to a lack of capacity in the two specialist inpatient units in Wales.
