    Abstract

    Aims and Methods To examine whether national initiatives have led to improvements in the physical health of people with psychosis. Secondary analysis of a national audit of services for people with psychosis. Proportions of patients in 'good health' according to seven measures, and one composite measure derived from national standards, were compared between multiple rounds of data collection. Results The proportion of patients in overall 'good health' under the care of 'Early Intervention in Psychosis' teams increased from 2014-2019, particularly for measures of smoking, alcohol and substance use. There was no overall change in the proportion of patients in overall 'good health' under the care of 'Community Mental Health Teams' from 2011-2017. However, there were improvements in alcohol use, blood glucose and lipid levels. Clinical implications There have been modest improvements in the health of people with psychosis over the last nine years. Continuing efforts are required to translate these improvements into reductions in premature mortality.
