Mental Health Investment Standard
NHS England planning guidance for 2018/19 states that each Clinical Commissioning Group must meet the Mental Health Investment Standard (MHIS), by which their 2018/19 investment in mental health rises at a faster rate than their overall published programme funding.

Other 'About Us' Documents
NHS St Helens CCG is wholly supportive of partnership working and as such is an active participant in the Staff Partnership Forum facilitated by NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit. The CCG utilises this forum as a vehicle and mechanism to support proactive staff engagement, consultation and, where appropriate, negotiation. The CCG does not employ anyone who undertakes relevant union official duties as outlined in the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 and therefore no time is released from this employer in relation to official duties. The CCG liaises and works with CSU TU representatives and area/regional representatives from those recognised unions whose time will be recorded with their employing authority.
