Ground-breaking reports show inequalities in your region
Ground-breaking reports are
available which lay bare the inequalities between physical and
mental health care in your region for the first time.
The Strategy Unit have been commissioned by NHS England to
produce bespoke reports for each of the 44 Sustainability and
Transformation Partnership areas in England.
The reports have been distributed nationally via STPs but have
not always reached the right people. College Members are invited to
contact firstname.lastname@example.org to

The reports show the life expectancies and causes of death for
their mental health patients compared to the rest of their
population and other similar STP areas.
And using national linked datasets, they focus on how
disproportionately those people use acute hospital services such as
A&E departments, inpatient services and diagnostic tests.
Each report provides activity and cost information for
activities, where STP’s have an evidence -based opportunity to
improve the physical health of or deliver more efficient health and
care services for those with mental health conditions.

health lead, then we have arranged with The Strategy Unit that you
