DH mental health advisor sacked8th February 2011
Professor David Richards, the head of mental research services at the University of Exeter, has been sacked for questioning a statement made by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
Professor Richards called Mr Clegg's claim that £400 million of "new money" would be given to enhance access to talking therapies "a lie". Professor Richards worked as an independent mental health advisor for the Department of Health and played a key role in the development of the improving access to physical therapies programme (IAPT).
