No beds, no staff, no pay = NOT SAFE
Greater Manchester Mental Health Servies are again in crisis. The QCQ has judged some as “inadequate”, primarily due to them having too few staff. Users of the services wait for community, therapy and in-patient services. They can be discharged prematurely. Staff are exhausted and not listened to. Low pay adds to their demoralisation. It cannot go on.
We know 12 years of pay cuts have driven many staff who are exhausted with huge workloads, out of the system. The answer for more staff is better pay, more user-focussed care that looks at and helps with the causes of people’s distress, less targets, and less risk-driven care.
Together users, carers, staff, trade unionists and communities can fight together for a better service.
