Chairing Session on Drug Misuse and Mental Health



Naz Chairs Westminster Social Policy Forum on Drug Misuse 

Nov 10

 Stimulating morning co-chairing a Westminster Social Policy Forum where participants critically considered the key themes of the Government's independent review of drug addiction and treatment and how these are addressed in the Government's new drug and addiction strategy.


Eminent speakers from the NHS, drug rehabilitation projects, and inspection services have been considering the increasing number of drug related deaths across the UK and what impact the proposed changes to service commissioning and funding will have. 

The Government needs to do more to join up services, particularly the provision around drug/alcohol misuse and mental health services through much smarter commissioning.
