Mental health care is the public’s number one issue that it wants policy makers to focus on for 2018, say Healthwatch.
Notably, the public wanted a focus on the mental health care and support available to children and young people.
With additional focus on the lack of mental health awareness, early intervention and difficulty accessing effective and appropriate support.
Top priorities following mental health care were adult social care, service changes, hospital care and access to GP services.
Imelda Redmond, National Director of Healthwatch England, said: “We want to see all working in health and social care make it their personal New Year’s resolution for 2018 to work with people as partners in designing the future of services.”
