All CWP staff.
The policy raises awareness of the need for physical health checks for those clients in an inpatient and community setting, as part of the initial medical / Nursing assessment and who are regularly compliant with typical and atypical antipsychotic medication prescribed by medical practitioners within CWP but are unable to engage with primary care services for physical health checks.
The policy sets out guidance for non medical staff to complete routine blood tests for clients in an Inpatient, community setting and those clients to be initiated / maintained on clozapine therapy.
