An example Job Description (JD) and Person Specification (PS) was shared
when the offer was cascaded to regional mental health teams. This JD and

they were able to confirm that funding would be utilised to recruit a role
in line with the JD and PS.

* Reasons why some trusts were unsuccessful in applications
No trusts applied and were not successful.

* Reasons trusts gave as to why they did not apply for the funding

* short timescales attached to the funding: the offer was cascaded in
December for a January and February allocation

third wave when the optional process was launched.
