Local authorities, in partnership with local National Health Service mental health trusts, are responsible for assessing the needs of their local population and commissioning services to meet these needs.

Health Education England is currently working with the Royal College of Psychiatrists to improve recruitment and retention in core and high core psychiatry training.
