Notes to editors
Following the reforms introduced by the Health and Social Care Act 2012, responsibility for the mental health and wellbeing of London’s population (as with other parts of the country) lies in the hands of organisations with varying geographical and population-specific remits. In London, this involves 32 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), 33 local authorities, 3 local education and training boards, the London offices of NHS England and Public Health England, 10 mental health trusts, and other non-NHS providers. The London Health Board provides leadership on pan-London health issues and is currently developing its mental health priorities, while a number of pan-London mental health programmes previously led by NHS London continue within individual organisations, including UCL Partners, the Anna Freud Centre, and NHS England.
The stakeholder engagement process brought together a diverse set of agencies with a role in improving London’s mental health, along with service users and carers to develop a shared vision for the future.
