This webinar looks at new ways to support people with physical and mental health needs in primary care, leading to improved patient outcomes, creation of savings and reduced stress for clinicians.

The webinar will share learning from two evaluated projects, where clinical psychologists worked in primary care settings in Bradford and Shropshire/Catterick.

This timely event is suitable for GPs, practice managers, commissioners, provider trusts, psychologists and links into the work to develop mental health practitioner roles.

You will hear from psychologists and a GP who have put this into practice. They will provide case studies aimed at supporting primary care staff with patients who can be hard to help. This includes:

• Patients with persistent physical complaints

• Patients who attend frequently but with little relief

• Patients who fall between IAPT and secondary care

• Patients who get bounced around the system

You will learn about how these services made a difference to GPs and patients as well as how they were set-up and function.
