This report presents the results of the finance mapping exercise carried out as part
of the autumn review process. It provides details of the level of investment in
mental health services for older people’s mental health services (OPMH) covering
people aged 65 and above, in England for 2011/12 and compares it with the
reported results in previous in OPMH in England since 2006/07.
Overall, 87% of OPMH investment by value was reported with only 13% being
estimated – a little higher estimation than last year but still very creditable for a non mandatory collection. Return rates were better from PCTs than Local Authorities
(89% investment reported compared to 84%). The largest area of non returns was
the same as the working age adult survey, from the West Midlands area which
consequently has a much higher level of estimation.
