Data on the number of private mental health professionals working in clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) is not collected. Data on the National Health Service mental health workforce is not held in the format requested. A table showing the number of full time equivalent staff in the NHS mental health workforce by region and integrated care system (ICS) as at June 2019, June 2020, June 2021 and June 2022 is attached. ICSs replaced CCGs from July 2022. NHS trusts can provide services across multiple ICSs. Therefore in some instances the data presented may show where trusts have been assigned to a lead ICS.
