The Mental Health SMI (Severe Mental Illness) Review template can be accessed from the top of the main 'Bipolar Disorder' and 'Psychotic Disorder' templates. It can also be accessed from the 'Long Term Conditions' template as part of the LTC Resources on Ardens.


The template includes useful links to further templates, safeguarding resources, care plans and more.


There are also lots of associated reports in Clinical Reporting > Ardens > Best Practice > Mental Health and Ardens > Contracts 2018 to 2019 > Annual > Mental Health


At present, SMI reviews include patients with a diagnosis of a bipolar or psychotic disorder. A patient with depression, anorexia or another mental health illness could also be defined as having a Severe Mental Illness and could have the 'On SMI Register' read code added to their record, but because of how QOF has historically defined Mental Health as bipolar and psychotic disorders only, these patients are not included in SMI reviews at present.
