Campaigners have pledged to lobby Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust’s (NSFT) board of directors meeting today over a new plan, which says that extra savings of £44m would need to be found by 2019, if there is no major increase in mental health funding.
Members of the Campaign to Save Mental Health Services in Norfolk and Suffolk will be protesting outside the meeting at the Green Britain Centre in Swaffham about the proposed cuts.
A spokesman for the campaign said: “The plan doesn’t address the beds or community crises, and proposes more chaotic organisational changes. The plan also appears to have a massive black hole of millions of pounds of unidentified cost savings.”
