Guidance on physical care of those with serious mental illness

NHS Digital is to start collecting data on physical health assessments for people with severe mental illness (SMI) in primary care.

A new data collection service is in line with the aims of the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health. The first collection will be due in October 2018, covering the 12 months to September 2018. Subsequent reporting will be quarterly. Technical and commissioning guidance is available.
