This quality standard covers identifying and managing anxiety disorders in adults, young people and children in primary, secondary and community care. It covers a range of anxiety disorders, including generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder and body dysmorphic disorder. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.
Keeping quality standards up to date
We checked this quality standard in 2017. The source guidance on post-traumatic stress disorder is currently being updated and we are assessing what changes will need to be made to the quality standard.
