This content relates to the following topics:

In 1997, an inquiry from The King's Fund found wide variations in the cost of mental health services across London.

This working paper asks how spending patterns have changed since then, finding some positive outcomes, such as mental health grants allocation being linked to deprivation. However, some boroughs' spending is far higher or lower than expected. This is one of a series of papers produced as part of The King's Fund Mental Health Inquiry.
