To ask the Scottish Government how many under 18s requiring mental health services have been admitted to adult wards in each year since 1999.
Answered by: Maureen Watt 15 August 2016
The Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland began publishing standardised data on the admission of young people to adult wards on the implementation of the 2003 Act in October 2005. The data has been published annually since then and is publicly available at http://www.mwcscot.org.uk/publications/statistical-monitoring-reports/.
