NHS England has established a new perinatal mental health community services development fund to support quality improvement and service development, and demonstrate the impact of access to high quality care and interventions for women, their babies and families.
Guidance has been prepared to support Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS mental health trusts and foundation trusts and Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) footprints submit funding proposals.
£5m is available this year, £15m in 2017/18 and £40m the following financial year.
From 2019, money for this specialist support will go straight into mainstream NHS funding.
