About us

Mental Health Investment Standard

The NHS England and NHS Improvement planning guidance1 for 2018/19 stated that each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) must meet the Mental Health Investment Standard2 (MHIS) by which their 2018/19 investment in mental health rises at a faster rate than their overall published programme funding.

As the Accountable Officer of South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG, I am responsible for the preparation of the Mental Health Investment Standard Compliance Statement (the “Statement”) for the year ended 31 March 2019 and for the financial information that forms the basis of the calculation on which the Statement is derived.

This includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation of the Statement to ensure that mental health expenditure is correctly classified and included in the calculations and that the Statement is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

To the best of my knowledge and belief I have properly discharged my responsibilities, with regard to reporting against the Mental Health Investment Standard.

South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG considers that it has complied with the requirements of the mental health investment standard for 2018/19.
