According to the BBC Panorama website:
One month after prime minister Theresa May promised to ‘transform the way we deal with mental health problems right across society’, reporter Sophie Hutchinson investigates the troubled state of NHS mental health services. She hears the concerns of staff and patients at the first mental health trust in England to be placed in special measures, and learns of the deteriorating national picture for mental health care funding, exclusively revealing new figures that show a shocking increase in unexpected deaths of mental health patients.
This looks like an important piece of investigative journalism: mental health is in crisis and people are paying with their lives!
‘The first mental health trust in England to be placed in special measures’ has to be Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT).
