Psychosis patients 'not getting best care'

Psychosis patients 'not getting best care' A key government target for caring for people with severe mental health conditions in England is being missed due to underfunding, research suggests.

People experiencing a first episode of psychosis should be seen within two weeks and get a quality care package.But Liberal Democrat research indicates that while more people are being seen on time, few get the right treatment. NHS England said "the analysis inevitably gives only a partial and dated picture of progress".

New care and treatment standards for psychosis were introduced by the Department of Health in April 2016. BBC News - Health
