Delivering the Five year Forward View - 19th September 2018

Mental Health 2018

19th September 2018 - RSM, London

The independent Mental Health Taskforce published its Five Year Forward View in February 2016 which set out the current state of mental health service provision in England and made recommendations in all service areas.

In July 2016, NHS England published an Implementation Plan detailing how it will deliver the recommendations made by the Taskforce working with its partner arms-length bodies. The Plan presents the timeframes and funding for delivery of the programmes of work which will transform mental health services.

Mental Health 2018 - Delivering the Five year Forward View is an opportunity to consider progress of the Implementation Plan and monitor progress on it's commitments to transform mental health services.
