NHS Confederation: Mental health dashboard shows providers making progress despite huge financial pressures

Responding to the Mental Health dashboard, Rebecca Cotton, Director of Mental Health Policy, Mental Health Network said: “We welcome the publication of this data and the transparency it brings.

“Despite hugely challenging financial circumstances, providers have reduced the use of police cells as places of safety, increased employment and improved the number of Early Intervention in Psychosis referrals starting treatment within two weeks.

“There is however still much work to be done, particularly around Mental Health Act detentions, access to therapies in secure settings and declining numbers of full physical health checks for people with severe mental illnesses.

“To improve these areas, it is imperative NHS England and the Government make good on their promises to get funding to the frontline where it is urgently needed.”
