Schedule 2Aii includes detailed requirements for mental health providers to support PCNs by employing mental health practitioners (MHPs) embedded in local PCN teams. Following a consultation in March 2022, we have published a revised Schedule which allows for numbers of MHPs to be increased where there is local agreement and includes a slightly revised role description, with scope to employ non-registered staff. See paragraph 3.13 of the Contract Technical Guidance for further detail.
