S5W-15227: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 12 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what (a) support and (b) resources it provides to the parents or carers of children receiving mental health treatment on the child's discharge from hospital, and whether it plans to extend this.

Answered by: Maureen Watt 21 March 2018

Health Boards and integration authorities are responsible for health provision for inpatients and those in the community. It is the responsibility of each local authority to meet social care needs. This includes support provided to the parents or carers of children receiving mental health treatment on the child's discharge from hospital.
