HEALTH chiefs in Bolton are being urged to reverse spending cuts on mental health services.

Data obtained by the Labour party indicates that Bolton’s Clinical Commissioning group and others across Greater Manchester are cutting the amount they spend on mental health, despite government promises to increase funding.

Now Ashton-under-Lyne MP Angela Rayner, patron of the Labour Mental Health campaign has written to every CCG group in the conurbation, demanding improvements in mental health services — and has been “backed to the hilt” by Bolton MP Yasmin Qureshi.
