Children and young people's mental health waiting times shared for the first time

In October 2018, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham announced that, by the end of the year, Greater Manchester will be the first place in the country to start collating and publishing publicly waiting times data for children and young people’s mental health services. This data from 1st April 2018 to 30th September 2018 can be seen by clicking here along with other information relating to the transformations made to Greater Manchester's children's and young people's mental health services since the start of devolution in 2016.  

The data is an initial attempt at ensuring transparency – with recognition that some of these reported results are now being refined and will become more accurate over the coming year as recording systems improve. The Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership will publish data on a quarterly basis
