All psychological therapies in Derbyshire to face cutbacks
Psychological therapies paid for by Derbyshire’s main NHS organisations are facing cuts, health chiefs have announced.
This comes several months after a public consultation into cuts to a small part of this service, psychodynamic psychotherapy, was paused due to the level of public opposition.
Now, during a meeting in which Derbyshire County Council had aimed to scrutinise the county’s Clinical Commissioning Group (CCGs) leadership, all parts of psychotherapy will be brought within the scope of potential cuts in order to save much-needed money.
At this stage, it cannot disclose how many patients could be affected, how much money could be cut, or give examples of therapies which are currently supplied and could be at risk.
First, slash the funding: then, watch the service standard deteriorate: finally, abolish the standard and pretend it does not matter. Tory NHS policy in a nutshell. No depths of cynicism too deep for lying Tory Governments to sink to.
Our plan for a better, fairer Britain We have a vision for a country that works for the many, not just the privileged few.
