The revisiting of Lord Bradley’s recommendations and the Government’s commitment to improve liaison and diversion services, present new opportunities for effective joint working at a local level.
Our Improving Mental Health Services in the Criminal Justice System Conference is a great opportunity to prepare for the new health commissioning landscape which comes into force in April 2013, and meet the deadline of implementing effective liaison and diversion services at all police custody suites and criminal courts by 2014.
