Mental health services to get £2bn funding boost in budget

Philip Hammond says measures being announced in budget depend on
reaching Brexit deal

Philip Hammond will announce a £2bn real-terms increase in
mental health funding on Monday as he unveils his first budget
since Theresa May told the Conservative party conference that
voters needed to know austerity was over.

The commitment should lead to comprehensive mental health
support being available in every large A&E department. It
suggests that mental health, long seen as a neglected area within
the NHS, will benefit disproportionately from the £20bn-a-year
funding increase for health announced by the prime minister in
June.
