NHS England want views on the Tier 4 CAMH services that they provide. To do this they have launched a public consultation on five service specifications for CAMHs (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) Tier 4 provision as part of their service review programme.
NHS England are asking for views on the following service specifications:
- Child and Adolescent Medium Secure
- Child and Adolescent Low Secure
- Child and Adolescent Forensic Outreach
- Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (PICU)
- CAMHS T4 General Adolescent
NHS England have developed their specifications with the support of lead clinicians and patient and public representatives. In addition to giving your views on these specifications NHS England will be hosting a series of webinars and face to face events in the New Year and they will share the dates and times once they have been confirmed.
The new specifications once finalised will play an important part in work to reconfigure services to ensure improvements in local overall pathway integration, improvements in local access and reductions in travel times and out of area placements.

The consultation will close on the 28 February 2017.
