Development of Croydon's Primary Care Protocols for Common Mental Illnesses 2001: a bottom-up approach

  • Maggie Bruce (a1)
Extract

The Mental Health National Service Framework (NSF) states that primary care groups (PCGs) should work with primary care teams and specialist services to agree protocols for common mental health problems. The Primary Care Protocols for Common Mental Illnesses developed in Croydon were circulated by the Department of Health to all regional offices, as an example of good practice, and 20 health authorities and primary care organisations have requested final electronic versions to adapt for local use. The protocol dealing with eating disorders has been adapted by the Royal College of Psychiatrists Eating Disorders Special Interest Group and appears on the College's website. This paper describes how all the protocols were developed and how they can be accessed.
