Kelly-Marie Blundell, Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Lewes is calling for more investment in mental health provisions in the light of avoidable deaths at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust between 2007 and 2015.
“My heart goes out to the families of the victims, who were failed by the health system due to lack of investment.
“Mental health affects everyone, yet continued cuts by the Conservatives mean the services are inadequate for the people who need them.
“The CQC reported just weeks ago that no mental health practice across the UK was rated as outstanding, and just 34% were rated as good.
“And yet we see ongoing cuts to services that people desperately need.”
