Mental Health Services

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was spent on mental health in each primary care trust area in the last year for which figures are available; and how many mental health patients there were in each area. (122612)

Information about the expenditure by each primary care trust (PCT) on commissioning secondary care mental health services in 2005-06 has been placed in the Library. The Department does not collect information about expenditure by PCTs on commissioning primary care mental health services.

Nor does the Department collect information about diagnoses in primary care, so information about the number of people with specific mental health problems in each PCT is not available.
