NHS mental health matters

sporting injury claims

NHS mental health matters are incredibly important to get right. The importance of quality help and support for those who are suffering due to the pressures and worries in life cannot be understated.

We are much more aware of the need to look after ourselves these days, and we are also living in a time where there are increasing pressures from a number of different things taking place all around us.

As lawyers, we have a lot of experience when it comes to mental injuries and how we can help those suffering from them.

The importance of NHS mental health matters

We simply cannot understate how hugely important NHS mental health matters really are. We live in a day and age where we are much more aware of our mental health as a society, and we know that we need to do a great deal to look after it and protect it. NHS mental health services are so important, especially at a time when there are increasing difficulties off the back of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as well as the instability of the geopolitical climate and the increasing pressures caused by the cost-of-living crisis.

And these are all additional factors that have only arisen in the last few years.

Ultimately, inadequate care can cost lives. Negligence can lead to people being harmed and people suffering, and this cannot happen. We know that there are continually problems that arise from central government funding as well. Any harm that can be caused as a result of a lack of funding which leads to a lack of quality care literally risks people’s lives, and we cannot have that.

A recent story and inquiry

There was a recent story in the news about NHS mental health patients being reportedly let down badly by Essex NHS mental health services. According to Sky News, it had been found that there had been some 1,500 patients who had died whilst in the care of the Essex services or within three months of discharge over a period of two decades.

Whilst the investigations appear to be at an early stage, it is understood that the Trust is being investigated over concerns of a number of suicides. News of the report comes not long after the Trust was also reportedly fined £1.5m over apparent safety failings in respect of 11 patients.

The Trust has been accused of simply not caring, with bereaved families understood to be including their experiences as part of the investigations and reviews.

We understand the importance

As a law firm, we do understand the importance of mental health all too well. A lot of the claims for compensation that we take forward nowadays are actually for data matters that are for distress and suffering that has been caused, and these are mental injuries as opposed to physical ones. We have helped people through some of the most difficult days they have had to experience as part of a legal action for compensation, and whilst we are here for the legal muscle, we do care about our clients deeply. We do want to be able to help as much as we can.

We start by providing free, no-obligation advice to anyone that might need our help. Where we can help, we are also able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation for eligible clients.
