• Please note: Mental Health Bulletin, 2019-20: Removal of Care Programme Approach measures consultation

NHS Digital is continually working to improve the relevance and usefulness of content in the Mental Health is a Bulletin. Alongside planned additions and improvements, it has been brought to our attention that the three measures (and associated breakdowns) relating to the Care Programme Approach (CPA) are no longer a priority and that the monitoring of individual elements of good care delivers greater benefit.

As a result of this feedback we are consulting on the removal of the following measures from the Mental Health Bulletin, 2019-20:

  • 2a - Number of people in contact with NHS funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services on the Care Programme Approach (CPA)
  • 2b - Number of people in contact with NHS funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services not on the Care Programme Approach (CPA)
  • 2c - Proportion of people in contact with NHS funded secondary mental health, learning disabilities and autism services on the Care Programme Approach (CPA)

If you have any comments on the proposed removal of these measures please contact us at mh.analysis@nhs.net and use the title “Mental Health Bulletin 2019-20: Removal of Care Programme Approach measures consultation” by 01 September 2020.
