Minister invites funding bid to improve mental health services in Norfolk and Suffolk

Working to secure better mental health services for patients and their families in Norfolk and Suffolk, Dr Dan secured an urgent debate in the House of Commons on Wednesday 2nd May, calling on the Government to provide greater support for mental health funding across Norfolk and Suffolk.

In securing the debate, Dr Dan specifically raised awareness of the challenges faced by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust directly with the Minister and he was delighted that in responding to the debate, the Minister was both receptive and sympathetic, encouraging the Trust to submit a bid for further funding.
