The planning guidance for 2019/20 stated that each CCG must plan to achieve the Mental Health Investment Standard (MHIS) in 19/20 and CCG’s must spend greater or equal to the 2019/20 target spend provided by NHS England.

As the Accountable Officer of Gloucestershire CCG I am responsible for the preparation of the Mental Health Investment Standard Compliance Statement (the “Statement”) for the year ended 31st March 2020 and for the financial information that forms the basis of the calculation on which the Statement is derived. This includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation of the Statement to ensure that mental health expenditure is correctly classified and included in the calculation and that the Statement is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

To the best of my knowledge and belief I have properly discharged my responsibilities, with regard to reporting against the Mental Health Investment Standard.

Gloucestershire CCG considers that it has complied with the requirements of the mental health investment standard for 2019/20. The 2019/20 target spend was £80.089m and actual spend was £80.207m.
