Bassetlaw MP John Mann and Notts County Council have clashed over changes to medical services for drug addicts in Notts.

Following a three month consultation, the council’s public health committee decided to move substance misuse services away from local GPs and entrust them with a non-profit charity called the Crime Reduction Initiative.

The council say this will ensure ‘evidence-based and consistent services’ are put in place, resulting in fewer people requiring treatment and support for drugs and alcohol issues.
