TS204 - Remodel Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) Input

Closed 12 Dec 2012

Opened 18 Sep 2012


Outline of Proposal

It is proposed to delete one social worker post within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health team (CAMHS). By appropriate screening of referrals it is anticipated that the service will be able to offer appropriate levels of support to those children and young people most in need.  Lower level support will be offered by other services where required, often by professionals who already work with the child in question, and these professionals will be able to access advice and guidance from CAMHS staff when required.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £46,000.

As the proposal will affect service users, we have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment to identify likely or actual effects on people with protected characteristics. The Equality Impact Assessment will be reviewed and updated as required, taking account of consultation feedback.
