Plans to boost number of mental health workers in Rutland

There are plans to increase the number of mental health workers supporting children across Rutand and Leicestershire.

Over the last 3 years the local NHS has taken on 67 new members of staff.

But they say they'll need even more to keep up with demand in the area.

They meet later to look at where improvements to mental health services still need to be made. 

Another key focus is to improve access to therapy and support.
