MHPC: Mental Health Primary Care

Mental Health Primary Care refers to the type of mental healthcare that patients receive from their General Practitioner.

The acronym MHPC can be used in Summary of Care Records and medical notes to give insight into where the patient was seen regarding their mental health. In mental health, General Practitioners can refer patients to specialists and counsellors, monitor long term conditions and medication plans, and they are typically the first point of care and contact for people suffering from mental health related issues in the UK.
