Mental Health GP Shared Care
Studies have shown that a holistic approach to patient care, including strong collaboration between GPs and mental health services, leads to improved patient outcomes.
The Mental Health GP Shared Care resources are a directory of mental health service details, and information to better support GPs in the shared care of mental health patients.
Resources include guidelines and templates to help you establish a shared care arrangement to exchange clinical information and support shared decision making for your patient.
You will also find:
- catchment boundaries to help you locate the right mental health team for your patient
- contact details for clinical assistance and specialist advice
- information and resources to complete physical and metabolic health assessments for mental health service patients
- referral forms and details.
