Service users of mental health services

20th January 2012 by Louise Hudman

Most of this guideline is fairly obvious – treat people with respect and take a holistic approach.

The main thing that is new and will impact on us, is that they advise that patients should be given a copy of their initial referral letter to the mental health services. How this will actually work in practice hasn’t been specified.

At initial referral, they should also be seen within 3 weeks (unless they change their offered appointment date, in which case it can be put back by up to 2 weeks).

"I have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
