In response to the Children’s Commissioner for England report, Sean Duggan, chief executive of the Mental Health Network, which is part of the NHS Confederation, said:

“The commissioner’s report highlights an extremely important area that we need to tackle as an entire health and social care system.

“Its recommendations must be supported by government, across government departments.

“The focus on learning disabilities and mental health and investment within the Long Term Plan gives us an opportunity to implement the recommendations and put this right.

“We also need to ensure we attract and keep staff into this area and the national drive to increase the workforce is welcomed.”
