Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in Anytown is provided by Anytown Healthcare.
The Single Point of Access (SPA) will review all referrals into specialist CAMHS on a daily basis and make an immediate decision about its priority and allocation. Once referrals are reviewed a decision will be made on the most appropriate form of support to meet the presenting need. Where appropriate the young person will be signposted without the need for referring the case back to the referrer if it is felt they require a different service other than a specialist CAMHS service.
Anyone can make a referral to CAMHS, including children, young people and families themselves. Schools are also ideally placed as they often know a great deal about a child and can include this on the referral form; there is no need to refer via a GP and we have written to schools to let them know this.
The consultation line for professionals will continue to be available for discussions around potential referrals into the service or general advice about children’s mental health.
