The below Parliamentary question was asked by Norman Lamb on 2016-02-01.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many times there were no tier four child and adolescent mental health services beds available in (a) England and (b) each region in the last 12 months.
Since 1 April 2015, there have always been tier four Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services beds available in England as a whole.
Since 1 April 2015, there were a total of 26 days when no beds were available in the South East and 52 days when no beds were available in the South West. In all other regions there have always been tier four beds available since April 2015.
Accurate data is only available from 1 April 2015 due to the introduction of a more effective bed status database from that date.
