Victory for Lifeworks!

Submitted by Matthew on 4 July, 2014 - 2:12

Service users protesting at the closure of a mental health drop in centre have had a victory after four months in occupation.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust had previously tried to close the Lifeworks centre in favour of a countywide service, which would force all patients back to their GP and through a series of assessments without any support available.

Management have agreed to keep the Lifeworks centre open for five years, with hospital transport for those that require it and the open clinic being open two days a week.

The chairman of the county council's health committee, Cllr Kilian Bourke, hopes that “the campaign has helped to raise the profile of mental health provision locally.”
