Funding mental health at a local level: unpicking the variation

NHS Providers and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) surveyed finance directors in mental health trusts and chief finance officers in CCGs to understand how the parity of esteem commitment is being implemented locally. The survey found that the government’s commitment to parity of esteem between mental and physical health services is being undermined by a failure to ensure funding increases reach the frontline with only half (52%) of providers reporting that they had received a real terms increase in funding of their services in 2015/16.
