To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many acute mental health beds there are in each mental health trust in England; and how many such beds there are per 100,000 people.

The Department does not collect the total number of acute mental health beds in each mental health trust in England or the number of beds per 100,000 people.

However, the Department does collect data on the average daily number of mental health beds available in all trusts in England that are available overnight.

Figures for the latest quarter (July to September 2011) are in the following table. The table also shows population data for England, and the number of beds per 100,000 people for England. The population data cannot be broken down further.
