Cuts to adult mental health services in England have started damaging the quality of care given to patients, a report suggests.
The review by the King’s Fund think tank found there was now “widespread evidence of poor quality care”.
Researchers linked this to the use of unproven, cheaper services in a bid to balance the books.

Norfolk County Council needs to make £111m of savings over three years
A disability rights organisation has warned that worst case scenario cuts of £73m in spending on adult social care could leave some of Norfolk’s most vulnerable people “dejected and abandoned”.
Norfolk County Council needs to make £111m of savings over three years, so every committee has been asked to plan to be spending 25pc less in three years time.
That would save £169m, so not all the cuts and savings proposed will happen, but councillors wanted options so they have some element of choice.
