Figures show more than 500 people experiencing a mental health crisis in Wales were held in a police cell last year because there were no hospital beds available. The only crisis house in Wales is the Coed Arian Crisis House run by the charity Gofal, in partnership with Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. The Welsh government said spending on mental health services in Wales has risen.

Most of extra £3.8bn NHS funds already spent, says expert | Society | The Guardian
Much of the extra £3.8bn allocated to the NHS in George Osborne’s autumn statement has effectively already been spent, a leading health expert had said. John Appleby, chief economist at the King’s Fund, backed Labour claims that NHS trust deficits and extra pension costs mean very little of the extra money promised for 2016-17 will be available for better care. He said the NHS was in a weaker position now than five years ago and faced a real challenge over the rest of this parliament. Labour released figures that it said showed Osborne’s health spending boost was “more spin than substance” because £2.2bn would be swallowed up covering trust deficits and another £1.1bn would have to fund extra pension costs. [ not possible to use that for "full 7-day NHS" ]

Chancellor urged not to cut vital health fund - BBC News
George "Mr Judgement Call" Osborne // Vital health services in England including stop smoking, obesity and sexual health clinics are at risk, experts are warning. Earlier this year the Chancellor unveiled plans to cut the £2.8bn public health budget by £200m from January. The pot is held by councils so is not covered by the government's promise to protect the health service. But doctors, nurses and other senior health officials say the money is vital to relieving pressure on the wider NHS. A total of 11 groups, including the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Royal College of Nursing, NHS Confederation and Faculty of Public Health, have put their names to a letter to George Osborne asking him to reconsider the plans. The letter warned raiding the funds would simply cause greater ill-health and inequality in the population. [...] [PREVENTION>>] [deal with Osborne for 8bn extra a year this Parliament] included making gains from improvements in people's health. [Cut now, pay more later!]

Thousands have died soon after being found ‘fit to work’ by the DWP’s benefit tests - UK Politics - UK - The Independent
The Department for Work and Pensions battled for months not to release the numbers, with its chief minister Iain Duncan Smith at one point telling Parliament they did not exist. [...] "What lies behind these figures is a cruel climate generated by some politicians and sections of the media that seeks to demonise those in need and undermine public confidence in our welfare state," [...] In 2012 a government advisor appointed to review the Government’s Work Capability Assessment said the tests were causing suffering by sending sick people back to work inappropriately. // [ privatisation and profiteering ] // Mr Duncan Smith arguing that the previous cash level created a “perverse incentive”. // &! bit.ly/1Ik0ovC &! bit.ly/1fJlfSe - More than 80 people a month are now dying after being declared ‘fit for work’. The safety net that used to be there for the most vulnerable is being torn to shreds [...] stopped using the term social security and replaced it with “welfare”.

BBC News - End scandal of mentally ill being held in police cells, MPs say
A Home Affairs Committee report called for a change in the law so that police cells were no longer deemed a "place of safety" under the Mental Health Act. About 6,000 adults and 200 children with mental health issues were detained in police cells last year because of a shortage of space in NHS hospitals. Home Secretary Theresa May said the government was reducing the numbers. 'Clear failure' Currently, people detained under section 136 of the Mental Health Act 1983 can be held in a hospital or police station for up to 72 hours. Police have been forced to "fill the gap" because of a lack of NHS facilities, [...] Last year 236 children were detained in a police cell under the law. "These people are not criminals, they are ill and often are experiencing a great deal of trauma," he said. [...] [...] suicides within two days of release have increased. &! haveyoursay@bbc.co.uk - Subject Mental Health - 31149226
