Mental health spending
We analysed NHS England's latest ‘dashboard’ of statistical
information on the NHS and found that of the 44 Sustainability and
Transformation Plan (STP) areas, four are investing less in mental
health care this year (2016-17) compared to last year
This despite the fact mental health is supposed to be the
“golden thread” that runs through the STP plans.
Those STPs are: Dorset; Milton Keynes, Beds and Luton; Bucks,
Oxon and Berks West; and Northamptonshire.
Our analysis was highlighted by the Health Service Journal last
