To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure that Clinical Commissioning Groups work with local authorities to develop and implement plans for the improvement of children's mental health services as set out in the Future in Mind report published in 2015 by the Department of Health and NHS England.

Following the publication of Future in Mind, every clinical commissioning group worked on the development of a local transformation plan for children and young people’s mental health services.

123 such plans were published in 2015, covering the whole of England. Local authorities were involved in the development of the plans as were children and young people and their families. NHS England ensures that local transformation plans are refreshed annually. Since 2016 this has been as part of local sustainability and transformation plans.
