RCPsych launches new site to help you track progress in mental health care

We’ve launched a new website called Mental Health Watch which will keep you in touch with how well the mental health system in England is performing.

Whatever your interest in mental health care, Mental Health Watch will help you track trends and assess progress - locally, regionally and across the country.

The site uses 25 key indicators to measure the health of mental health. We've divided these into six themes - Access, Care, Finance, Leadership, Quality and Workforce.

The site allows you to browse the indicators and interrogate the data - many of the indicators allow you to track trends at CCG, STP level or nationally.

The data on many of the indicators is drawn from NHS England's quarterly dashboard. Some data is drawn from NHS Digital, and updated monthly.

And some indicators are drawn from a panel of just over 600 psychiatrists across the NHS in England, who we survey four times a year to gauge the views of people working in the trusts, delivering services. Other indicators use data from the NHS Staff Survey, Care Quality Commission, NHS Improvement and Open Prescribing.
