New CQC survey finds that people with mental health difficulties have poorer than average hospital experience

13 June 2018

Today’s survey from CQC once again demonstrates that people with mental health difficulties have poorer than average experiences of being in hospital. This is despite the fact that they have higher levels of physical ill health and a 15-20 year shorter life expectancy. We must ensure that no one is treated less well because they have a mental health problem, including in A&E.

The Centre is now working with partners across mental and physical health to establish a new collaborative to address this inequality, called Equally Well UK. We hope this will stimulate action nationwide to ensure people with mental health difficulties get treated equally for their physical health.
