Campaign research shows mental health trusts nationwide face impossible 8% cut in budgets

BBC News

Research by the Campaign to Save Mental Health Services in Norfolk & Suffolk, using a combination of the latest regulatory filings with Monitor and Freedom of Information (FOI) requests, shows that NHS mental health trusts face a real terms cut in their income of eight per cent in real terms over the next four years. These cuts amount to about half a billion pounds in real terms. This research forms the basis of BBC news coverage of this issue today.

We already know from our local trust, Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, that cuts on this scale will destroy mental health services that are already in crisis nationwide. Cuts to services, euphemistically called ‘Cost Improvement Programmes’ or CIPs in NHS jargon, are already proving impossible for NHS trusts to meet. The impact of what is proposed is unimaginable.

We are happy to provide support to all media organisations, local campaigns, professional bodies and unions. Please get in touch.

Here is a breakdown for all the NHS trusts in the format:

  2. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that really
    knows what they are discussing on the internet.
    You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More and more people have to read this and understand this side
    of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you
    definitely possess the gift.
