End the exclusion of all NHS mental health services from the Patient Choice agenda to ensure patients with mental health issues get an equal right to make choices about their treatment and care. 

Why is this idea important?


The law already covers mental health patients who lack mental competence to choose so the total exclusion of NHS mental health services from the Patient Choice agenda is stigmatising , discriminatory and unnecessary.. Most other patients groups have a legal right to Patient Choice and the NHS states that Choice encourages patient satisfaction , recovery rates and drives quality of services. The lack of Patient Choice in mental health isn't only discriminatory its harmful.
