Holding answer received on 23 February 2018

There are no official statistics for the number of approved mental health professionals (AMHPs) in each local authority area of England and Wales. We are working with Skills for Care which undertakes an annual National Minimum Data Set (NMDS) collection with local authorities in England, to provide returns on the number of Approved Mental Health Professionals in their area. As part of this, on 8 February NHS Digital’s Personal Social Services: Staff of Social Services Departments, England 2017 publication highlighted work by Skills for Care to improve the coverage and completeness of the voluntary AMHP qualification field within the NMDS.
