County Durham mental health patient beds reviewed

People in parts of County Durham are being asked for their views on plans to change mental health services for older people.

The review by NHS County Durham and Darlington is looking at the number of mental health in-patient beds at three hospitals.

It has suggested five options, four of which will mean fewer assessment and treatment beds.

The consultation runs until the end of February.
