Patient death was 'knock-on effect' from lack of GP resources, says coroner

Comment

GPs contact me regarding the need for much more support from mental health services. Specialized services tend to have narrow referral criteria for acceptance and often are not integrated within themselves e.g. addiction services/IAPT/Mental health/CRT team/ transitions with patients falling between gaps and increasing pressure on overstretched GPs services how about 'CPN' type role based in primary care localities - generalist role
