P-05-812 Implement the NICE guidelines for Borderline Personality Disorder, Correspondence – Petitioner to Committee, 14.05.19


I’d like to thank the chair for writing to the first minister about provision for psychological therapy in Wales.  Can I ask the committee to recognise that in the past when trusts have had to prioritise how money is spent, they have traditionally opted not to invest in client groups that are less popular, opting to either exclude them from services or send them miles from home at an extortionate cost to the welsh tax payer.  While I welcome extra investment into psychological therapies in Wales can I urge the committee to ensure that ignoring the NICE guidelines for people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder is not an option for trusts. 

Many Thanks,
