The Welsh Government have responded to a joint review into the access of mental health services by Health Inspectorate Wales and the Wales Audit Office, which says children and young people continue to be put at risk.
A spokesperson for the Welsh Government said: “Since March 2013, the Health Minister Mark Drakeford has chaired quarterly meetings with the Vice-Chairs of NHS organisations, to discuss mental health services. The next meeting will take place early in the New Year.
“Today’s report will be the first item on the agenda in order to accelerate progress for children and young people.”
