Equally Well: Physical Health Checks for People Living with Severe Mental Illness 

This unique event is for GPs and their colleagues who provide physical health checks for patients on their severe mental illness registers. Annual health checks are an essential starting point for GPs to address the 20-year life expectancy gap for these patients. We understand that GPs and their colleagues are overstretched and under pressure.
