  1. Child and Adolescent mental health expenditure as recorded in the Costs Book (Report R04LSX and SFR 8.3).Data covers expenditure identified by NHS Boards as relating to NHS Mental Health services delivered in the hospital or the community that are specifically aimed at children and adolescents.

  2. Total NHS expenditure as recorded in the Costs Book (Report R300).

  3. Mental health expenditure as recorded in the Costs Book (Report R340). Again data covers expenditure identified by NHS Boards as relating to NHS Mental Health services delivered in the hospital or the community.

 

Note: Community Mental Health teams data is missing from NHS Fife, NHS Grampian and NHS Highland figures, therefore the expenditure on CAMHS for these boards is incomplete. This will also result in the Scotland total being incomplete.
