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

Ground-breaking reports show inequalities in your region

Ground-breaking reports are available which lay bare the inequalities between physical and mental health care in your region for the first time.

The Strategy Unit have been commissioned by NHS England to produce bespoke reports for each of the 44 Sustainability and Transformation Partnership areas in England.

The reports have been distributed nationally via STPs but have not always reached the right people. College Members are invited to contact to request a free copy for their area.


The crucial data in the reports

The reports show the life expectancies and causes of death for their mental health patients compared to the rest of their population and other similar STP areas.

And using national linked datasets, they focus on how disproportionately those people use acute hospital services such as A&E departments, inpatient services and diagnostic tests.

Each report provides activity and cost information for activities, where STP’s have an evidence -based opportunity to improve the physical health of or deliver more efficient health and care services for those with mental health conditions.

A sample report

With permission from the Black Country STP, their full report is available to review on The Strategy Unit website.

There are also some overview statistics available at the same address.


A report for your region

Whilst these reports have been distributed nationally via STPs, they have not always reached people who are working on this important issue locally.

If you can’t get your STP report locally from your STP mental health lead, then we have arranged with The Strategy Unit that you can request your full (free) local report by contacting the unit at
