While the health chief, Dr Nigel Lyons, has given assurances of additional services he mentioned that spending had yet to be finalized.

He said, 'I won't comment in detail about specific services or models of care. What I will say is what we'll be doing with the mental health budget allocation is looking at how we can provide better access to services across our whole area for people in need.'
