NHS Confederation - Response to Mental Health Taskforce Report

Stephen Dalton, Chief Executive, Mental Health Network, responded to the publication of the independent Mental Health Taskforce final report.

“This important report will be widely supported by mental health service providers – all of which have been straining to provide care with shrinking resources.

“The Government has promised better support for mental health services and its response to this Taskforce will be an important test of its commitment. The Government needs to do more to ensure NHS England’s vital funding for mental health trusts reaches front line services.

“Mental health trusts, working locally with other care groups, can have a huge and cost-effective role in public life. What they need is greater parity with other health services to strengthen their role and to reach people in need earlier, at the right time in the right place.”
