No mental health beds in the Harrogate district – a real risk

MH maleThe approved plans for a specialised facility to be built on the outskirts of Harrogate have been put on hold, pending the outcome of a local consultation. There is the possibility that patients will have to travel out of the district to receive care. For patients living with dementia this would be extremely stressful – away from familiar surroundings and people.
