Treat as one: bridging the gap between mental and physical healthcare in general hospitals

This report highlights concerns around the lack of progress on integration of physical and mental health care in general hospitals.

This is leading to poor care for patients with a physical illness who also happen to have a mental health condition. The report makes recommendations for bridging the divide between mental and physical health care in terms of workforce skill mix, staff training and improved sharing of medical records between mental health hospitals and general hospitals.
