To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how much of the recently announced additional funding for mental health and dementia services will be allocated to Hertfordshire; and what criteria will determine where and how that funding is spent.
The Mental Health Five Year Forward View dashboard shows the expenditure for 2015/16, and planned expenditure for 2016/17, on mental health services by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), including those for Hertfordshire. The dashboard is attatched.
The Mental Health Investment Standard, under which all National Health Service CCGs are required to increase baseline spend on mental health, is planned to be met across England as a whole in 2017/18 and 2018/19.
There have been no recent funding announcements for dementia services.
