We’ve started a new national investigation looking into medication omission in mental health hospitals.

It was launched after we were notified by the parent of a young adult service user with a learning disability, that he was regularly not offered prescribed medication whilst on a long-stay mental health ward.

The investigation will focus on information transfer within the prescribing and administration of medication in mental health hospitals to reduce omissions.
