Commissioned Services

New services to help improve the physical health of people living with severe mental illness (SMI), learning disabilities (LD), and autism

 People living with severe mental illness, learning disabilities, and autism have for many years faced some of the greatest health inequality gaps in England.

 There are a range of new services now established in Sheffield to help reduce these health inequalities, which will contribute towards meeting the commitments within the NHS Long Term Plan and also our local Strategy for Improving the Physical Health of people living with severe mental illness, learning disabilities, and autism.

 These services include:

 Sheffield Mind project to support GP Surgeries with SMI annual physical health checks & covid vaccinations support

  • Sheffield Mind has been commissioned by Sheffield CCG/NHSE to work closely with GP practices to ensure that patients who are currently finding it difficult to access their health checks and/or their Covid-19 vaccinations can be offered practical support to do this.
  • CCG has developed simple information sharing agreements that (once signed up to by the practice) allow practices to share patient contact details with the project (individual consent is not required).
  • Sheffield Mind will then contact identified patients/carers on behalf of the surgery and offer the individual the support or encouragement that the person needs to attend – e.g.

- spending time reassuring the person / their family or explaining about the importance of the check

- liaising with the patient/practice to understand what reasonable adjustments are needed/possible

- help with practical arrangements to help the person get to the Surgery and/or ‘attend’ a telephone appointment

 For more information please contact:
