Psychiatric Waiting Lists Must be Cut Down

The long waiting lists for psychiatric consultation some over 12 months old in several areas of the country must be reduced urgently, it was claimed today.//

Mr Neville, the party’s health spokesman, said it was well known that dealing early with psychiatric and emotional difficulties was key to restoration of mental health.
