Intelligence

There are limited published national measures on perinatal mental health. During 2016/17, NHS England will publish new data including the number of women receiving specialist perinatal care in the community, Implementing the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (page 15). 

Everyone’s Business provides an atlas of UK specialist community and inpatient services. 

The National Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network provides perinatal mental health needs assessment data by CCG and local authority.

Participating services can access data from the Royal College of Psychiatrists Quality Network for Perinatal Mental Health Services community services peer review to benchmark the quality of their service against similar services.
