Mental health position statement

This paper has been written to set out the position of the RCGP on the provision of mental health care in primary care and update the previous position statement.

Mental health has, and always will be an important part of general practice. As General Practitioners (GPs) we often provide mental health care as part of our holistic role.

This position statement can help clarify the current roles and responsibilities of the PHCT in light of recent policy changes and developments. It recognises that many of the recommendations can only take place if appropriate resources are provided. The statement considers the role of general practice in managing patients in the community, mental health problems and long-term conditions, parity of esteem of mental and physical health, inter-professional working as well as training and education.
