HC Deb 10 June 2003 vol 406 c832W
Angela Watkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the availability of treatment for drug dependence in people with severe personality and psychotic disorders in London. [116501]

Mr. Hutton

There are currently 11 national health service providers of mental health services in London. These providers either directly provide or have made arrangements for the provision of NHS and independent sector in-patient, out-patient and community services for people with drug dependence who also have severe personality or psychotic disorders.

The local borough-based planning and commissioning of these services is co-ordinated by the local drug action teams.
