Mental health services 'failing in South Cumbria'

An MP will urge the government to urgently intervene over a mental health trust he believes is failing.

Tim Farron, the member for Westmoreland and Lonsdale in Cumbria, has serious concerns about Cumbria Partnership Trust's ability to deliver mental health services.

He says it follows a Care Quality Commission report which said the trust was 'inadequate' when it came to 'responsiveness' to youth mental health services.
