From 2015/16 – 2017/18 NHS England and NHS Improvement funded Combat Stress £3.2 million per annum. For the few months Combat Stress delivered the NHS funded contract in 2018/19, £552,000 was given.

This £3.2 million annual allocation was reallocated to fund the Complex Treatment Service in April 2018 to support an enhanced service offer to the Transition Intervention and Liaison service for an increased number of veterans.

NHS England and NHS Improvement have agreed to provide Combat Stress financial support of £1 million per annum for two years with a potential further million in year three subject to a review in year.

The funding has been put in place to ensure that we have continuity of service while providing time for Combat Stress to move to their new operating model.
