The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

The end of a busy week!

Every day, something new occurs to do with the Health and Social Care Bill. As you've probably seen, today the Royal College of General Practitioners has called for the Prime Minister to withdraw the Bill.

As far as we are concerned, we stand by the statement the College issued on Wednesday. For the next two weeks, I will be working extra hard with our Policy team on a plain English version of what parity of esteem between mental and physical health means, and why we must have absolute evidence that it should appear across the face of any Bill.

In the meantime, I’d like express our great thanks to those Peers in the House of Lords who have been supporting amendments to the Bill that would improve the health and care of people with mental health problems.
