Holding answer received on 11 June 2020

Improving mental health is at the heart of this Government’s agenda and capital investment to modernise the mental health estate is a key part of the Government’s ambition to achieve greater parity between physical and mental health care.

As is the case for all National Health Service providers, the majority of capital expenditure by NHS mental health providers is financed from their own income sources and not provided centrally by the Department, but this is supplemented by national programmes of capital investment. The Government has announced investments of over £400 million in improving mental health estate since July 2017, and as set out in the Health infrastructure Plan on 30 September 2019, the Government is committed to making further strategic investments to modernise mental health facilities, which will be confirmed when the Department receives a multiyear capital settlement at the next capital review.
