Project Description

This research aims to gather the views, opinions and experiences of individuals with SMI, their carers and care professionals on care for physical health. In particular, we are interested in understanding the role of pharmacy and pharmacists both now, and in the future. The focus will be on heart disease, diabetes and related diseases as well as risk factors such as smoking and overweight/obesity. We want to use this information to help make recommendations to improve the care of physical health in mental health.

This research is being undertaken jointly and supported by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and Aston University. If you are interested in finding out more about the research/study, then please get in touch. Please contact the lead researcher Dolly Sud using the following email address:
