Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council are working jointly to undertake a review and redesign of Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

This review has been prompted by feedback from users of the service and providers that ease of access and waiting times within the service could be improved, as well as a change to the model for commissioning highly specialist services Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

The key objectives of the review are:

  • To ensure that children, young people, parents and professionals know where to go for assessment, intervention and support by introducing one point of contact for the service.
  • To commission a specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service that is able to respond quickly and appropriately to need as close to home as possible
  • To reflect the latest clinical guidance from NICE and the relevant professional bodies.

Hull and East Riding are planning to run a targeted engagement exercise to receive feedback on the redesign proposals from a wide range of stakeholder and users of the service. Subject to approval from the CCG Committees, Children’s Trust Boards and Overview and Scrutiny Committees in Hull and East Riding, it is proposed that the targeted engagement approach commenced from 7th December and will run until 15th March.
