    According to a review by the Children’s Commissioner, Anne Longfield, 13% of children with life-threatening conditions have not been allowed specialist support

    Anne Longfield said the system was “playing Russian roulette” with children’s health, BBC reports.

    NHS England said it was “clearly the case” that services need to expand.

    According to a report, as mentioned by the BBC

    “Those who secured treatment faced lengthy delays with an average waiting time of more than 100 days.”

    “More than a quarter of children referred to mental health services in England in 2015- including some who had attempted suicide received no help.”

    Anne Longfield also discovered that 28% of child referrals were denied specialist treatment- mostly on the grounds that their illness was not serious enough.

    This group included children who had attempted serious self-harm and those with psychosis and anorexia nervosa.
