Recommendations actions to take
- Support the development of a workforce that is confident and competent at delivering physical health checks for people with serious mental illness (SMI), and can refer patients on to services as required.
- Develop cross-sector staffing models to deliver screening, monitoring and evidence based treatments.
- Deliver a training plan and standardised screening tools and protocols to support co-working and uptake of physical health assessments and shared treatment plans.
Further recommendations are set out within the ‘Workforce development‘ section.
