Mental health services for young people
Dear University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust,
I submitted a FOI to the Dorset CCG for the following they said they do not hold the data and that you may hold it.
I'm wanting to know the amount of young people referred to mental health services that were turned away last year in Dorset?
The longest wait for a person under 18 to receive treatment for mental health services after being referred.
