Mental health staff to be based in police stations across Merseyside January 5th, 2014 admin Latest News Latest Uncategorized Shares Comments Mental health staff to be based in police stations across Merseyside Mental health nurses are to be based in police stations and courts in 10 areas of England as part of a pilot scheme aimed at cutting reoffending. The nurses’ duties will include helping officers to respond to calls and identify those with problems. Ministers said “too often” criminals with mental health problems were being diagnosed only once they reached jail. The £25m scheme – being trialled in areas including London and Merseyside – could be extended England-wide by 2017. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
