As a part of the PARTNERS2 Study, we are conducting a cluster randomised control trial. This will be testing the model of collaborative care which we have developed from the findings from the previous workstreams and feedback from a test of our model in 2016-2017.
This is taking place over the three study sites, Birmingham, Lancashire and Devon. We are currently in the process of recruiting 60 GP practices across these areas to participate within the trial, and the care partners who will be working with participants in the intervention group. We intend to begin this trial in June 2017, and will be recruiting 300 participants from the practices across the three study sites.
