  • Care for patients with an SMI and discharged from ELFT’s secondary care services is transferred to primary care.
  • Improved monitoring of the physical health of SMI patients between primary care and secondary care.
  • GP practices are assisted in delivering the NHS England policy Improving physical healthcare for people living with severe mental illness (SMI) in primary care:
