Half-day physical healthcare for people with severe mental illness course (HEE National)
A half-day, interactive course for primary care staff that looks at ways to improve the physical health of patients with severe mental illness. Please note, if you don't work in Primary Care you will not be accepted onto this course.
The course is for primary care staff providing annual health checks to service users with complex mental and physical health needs. It covers how physical health monitoring brings better outcomes for service users with serious mental illness and considers co-morbidities, whereby mental health problems among people with physical illnesses are costly for both our health system and the wider society.
Should you be successful in securing a place on this course, failure to attend will affect your ability to book onto future courses.
