S5W-05060: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 25 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how many young people have been refused treatment from child and adolescent mental health services in each year since 1999.

Answered by: Maureen Watt 9 December 2016

Data on how many young people have been refused treatment from child and adolescent mental health services is not held centrally.

Data on the number of referrals received and number of referrals rejected is collected and published on the ISD website (http://www.isdscotland.org/Health-Topics/Waiting-Times/Child-and-Adolescent-Mental-Health/). Referrals rejected are referrals that do not meet the criteria for CAMHS intervention.
