To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the answer by Lord Prior of Brampton on 11 October (HL Deb, col 1787), how much resource has been taken out of acute hospitals since the inception of the five-year forward view on mental health; and of this how much has been transferred to (1) mental health care, (2) community care, and (3) primary care.

All trusts will see an increase in overall funding, as we are supporting the National Health Service’s own plan by investing an additional £10 billion in real terms over the six years since the Five Year Forward View was published, including a £3.8 billion real terms increase this year alone. Official data on trusts’ exact income levels will not be known until the end of the financial year.
