Unison has called for amendments to the Mental Health Bill, which limits new powers on treatment to doctors only, to be thrown out.

It claims the amendments exclude experienced mental health workers including nurses and therapists from making decisions about appropriate treatment. The Bill is due to get its second reading today.
