In-house mental health therapists at GP practices – NHS ENGLAND

14th September 2018


Mental health therapists, mostly provided through collaboration with local improving access to psychological (IAPT) services, may well become the norm in GP practices. New guidance has been produced to encourage doctors to place mental health therapists in practice surgeries, bringing more mental and physical health services under one roof.

Their focus will be on common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression, particularly where this occurs in patients with a long term physical health condition such as diabetes, respiratory or heart problems.
