In response to the guidance published by NHS England on patients' choice in Mental Health Care Dr. Felix Davies, Managing Director of Mental Health Services for Turning Point said;

"Giving individuals with mental health issues the same choice as those with physical health issues is an important step towards parity of esteem.

It is essential that the right support is available for any individuals who need it, when they need it. Supporting people to make informed decisions about their mental health care will allow them to seek out the support that best suits their needs and recovery. We cannot have parity of esteem without this."
