· Common and more complex mental health conditions

· Mental health conditions relating to physical health

· Substance misuse including support for community detoxification

· Rehabilitation and support to return to work after a period of mental ill-health.

This service was a commitment from NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens and in the General Practice Forward View.
