The information requested is not available in the format requested because it is not possible to separate out mental health spend per capita, because primary care trusts were superseded by clinical commissioning groups in 2013, and because information is available for the previous two financial years only.

Expenditure on mental health by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) is published by NHS England in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health Dashboard. The actual spend for the Kent CCGs, including Medway CCG, on mental health for the years available is shown in the following table.
