Integrating our Mental and Physical Healthcare Systems (IMPHS) was a 3-year programme funded by the Maudsley Charity that sits within the Mind & Body Programme at King’s Health Partners, hosted by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (FT), and delivered in partnership with King’s College London concluding in March 2023.
The programme aimed to understand barriers that adults living with long-term mental illness may face when managing their physical healthcare and implement and evaluate interventions that could better facilitate integrated mental and physical healthcare in routine practice for patients accessing services both now and in the future.
In doing so, the project aimed to develop a body of work that could be shared with healthcare staff, commissioners, organisations, patients and carers to support high quality physical healthcare for adults with long-term mental health problems.
