The state of care in mental health services 2014 to 2017 - Updated 20 July 2017

Updated on 20 July 2017, the The state of care in mental health services 2014 to 2017 presents findings from our programme of comprehensive inspections of specialist mental health services.  Read in full here 

"As at 31 May 2017, we had rated 54 NHS trusts and 218 independent NHS services."

"68% of core services provided by NHS trusts were found to be good, with 6% rated as outstanding. Among independent services, 76% were rated as good or outstanding (72% good and 4% outstanding).

Some services performed particularly well, especially community services for people with a learning disability or autism and community services for older people.

In addition, services that needed to improve have made real progress when they have taken on board our findings and committed to tackle problems proactively and learn from others.

However, there are a substantial minority of NHS trust and independent services that need to improve the quality of care they provide. Thirty-nine per cent of NHS trusts were rated as requires improvement as at 31 May 2017, as did 23% of independent services. And a very small number were rated as inadequate: one NHS trust and three independent services."
