Reinstate the Mental Health Unit in Medway

The Mental Health Unit at Medway Maritime Hospital was closed in 2013 by Jeremy Hunt, this was short-sighted and a mistake.

A third of all police time is taken up having to look after mental health patients, time that could be better spent tackling crime.

Since the closure, KMPT (Kent and Medway's health and social care trust) has spent more than £5.6 million on out of area referrals due to a shortage of beds for patients.

We call on The Deptartment of Health to reinstate a fit for purpose Mental Health Unit in Medway.
