“What I want to see is not incremental change, but a wholesale shift in the scale of ambition across Government and the NHS on children’s mental health care. I want to see a clear expectation as to what local areas should be providing, with transparency and accountability to ensure this happens.” Anne Longfield OBE, Children’s Commissioner for England
