Private Members' Bill: The Mental Health Admissions (Data) Bill

On 5th February I submitted my Private Member’s Bill: The Mental Health Admissions (Data) Bill. This law would lead to the collection of much needed information to help ensure the best possible care when people are severely unwell with mental illness.

As an inpatient consultant I looked after many people who were severely unwell needing admission into hospital, and I’m proud that I can bring my experience of working in mental health to Parliament to try to improve things for people with mental illness.
