As a response to one of the recommendations in the Five Year Forward View in Mental Health, NHS England has committed to doubling access of Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Services by 2020/21 enabling people with SMI to find and retain employment.

Transformation funding witll be available to STP's (submitted by a lead CCG) to expand access to IPS (bids likely to be requested in November 2017).
