The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Our response to the Budget 2017

In response to the Chancellor Philip Hammond's Budget 2017 announcement, Professor Wendy Burn, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists said: “The Chancellor’s announcement of extra funding for the NHS is welcome but we now urgently need the Government and NHS England to confirm that they will keep existing plans for the delivery of mental health promises on track.

“It would be a catastrophic betrayal of people with mental illness if pledges already made to fund more services were to be abandoned now.”
