Abstract

This paper draws upon aspects of an ongoing project which is exploring the effectiveness of physical health care assessment of mental health service users, within the context of one community mental health service in the North of England. The project has as its focus the experiences of people with often significant mental health problems, along with consideration of how mental health professionals currently address physical care issues within the British system of the Care Programme Approach (Department of Health 1991; Department of Health, 2008).
