To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to page 9 of Implementing the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health and page 21 of the NHS Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019-20 to 2023-24, what funding formula was used to determine CCG baseline allocations for community eating disorder services for children and young people.

The indicative funding profile for children and young people’s eating disorder services in the Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019/20-2023/24 correlates to the national workforce and activity trajectories also set out in the Implementation Plan. These were modelled on the indicative workforce costs to achieve the children and young people’s eating disorder waiting time standard by the end of 2020/21 and being maintained thereafter.

Funding is then allocated as part of overall clinical commissioning group budgets, using a statistical formula to make geographic distribution fair and objective so that it more clearly reflects local healthcare needs and helps to reduce health inequalities.
