Unit for young people with specialist mental health needs

A new unit for young people with specialist mental health needs - the only one in the South - has opened in Hampshire.

Austen House in Calmore will provide 14 beds for vulnerable children, who'd previously been accommodated as far away as Manchester.

The unit is being run by Southern Health NHS Trust which is still rated as requiring improvement in many areas, as Richard Slee reports.

Interviewees: Caroline Dinenage MP, Minister of State for Care; Brian Collings, relative; Nick Broughton, Chief Executive, Southern Health NHS Trust.
