Mind and Body healthcare: Delivering the vision

January 26 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Mind and Body Healthcare Conference

This one day King’s Health Partners conference takes a look at the innovative mind and body work underway locally, with a particular focus on initiatives which join up mental and physical health through more integrated clinical care, training and research.

It is well-established that the mind and body are inseparable, and mental and physical health conditions are often connected. We also know that when mental and physical health problems are combined, people are less able to manage their conditions properly and their health outcomes become worse.

Evidence shows that by joining up physical and mental healthcare, we can help someone to manage their different conditions, improve their health outcomes, and even prevent unnecessary health problems for some people by identifying risk early.

This one day conference hosted by King’s Health Partners takes a look at the innovative work underway locally to deliver the mind and body vision set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View: that “the NHS will take decisive steps to break down the barriers in how care is provided between physical and mental health.

With a particular focus on initiatives which join up mental and physical health through more integrated clinical care, training and research, this event is suitable for anyone working in or with health and care organisations who wants to improve the mental and physical healthcare we provide for our patients and service users.

Programme details to follow shortly. We expect this event to be popular so please register as soon as you can.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
