Norfolk and Suffolk's mental health services, which are in special measurers, will get help from a Nottingham health trust, regulators announced today.

Monitor, which placed the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) in special measures in February, has arranged for staff from Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to improve services and staffing levels in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Monitor said in a statement: 'Access to this advice and expertise will enable Norfolk and Suffolk to adopt best practice and support the significant changes in care needed for its mental health and learning disability patients.'
