Mental health nurses will be stationed in police stations in the following boroughs as part of the London trial: Camden, Islington, Haringey, Barnet, Enfield, Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Waltham Forest.

There are existing schemes in all other police stations in London except Wembley and Harrow, although the hours of operation are not as extensive in these stations as in the Trial sites.  NHS England (London) plans to extend coverage to Wembley and Harrow during 2014/15.
