PCT debt threatens mental health services

August 16, 2007

The Kingston Guardian today reports that the ‘Springboard’ scheme to teach skills such as carpentry and printing to people with mental health problems will close before the start of the next financial year. This is the second mental health scheme to come under threat as a result of the PCT’s deficit in the last two months. The other proposed cut concerned the Kingston Hospital Liaison Psychiatry team which was discussed in July.

The PCT is reported to have debts of £22 million.
