From April 2021, PCNs can recruit mental health practitioners (MHPs) through the ARRS, to support population health management.

This guide explains the ARRS and highlights how MHPs can support population health management through providing a combined consultation, advice, triage and liaison function. Working with other PCN-based roles, MHPs can address the potential range of biopsychosocial needs of patients with mental health problems, as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

The guide is part of a series focusing on population health management and the key themes of workforce, digital, system working, regulation and finance.
