Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are commissioned for the whole of Surrey by Guildford & Waverley CCG. From 1 April, a new contract for CAMHS is being awarded to Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
As part of the new contract, Surrey Clinical Commissioning Groups and Surrey County Council will be investing an extra £2.3 million – a 30% increase – in the new contract.
Dr Charlotte Canniff, lead CAMHS clinician from NHS North West Surrey CCG said:
‘We are delighted that mental health for young people in Surrey has been given the focus and attention it deserves. Following extensive stakeholder engagement with Primary Care, Surrey County Council, Public Health, parents, carers, voluntary, community and faith sectors and young people themselves, we developed a set of new enhanced service requirements to achieve a more accessible and responsive service for our children and young people. We look forward to working with SABPT to deliver the best possible life outcomes for our children and young people through the best possible Child and Adolescent Mental Health services.’
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services – New Surrey Contract
The Surrey NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and our commissioning partners also worked together to submit a joint child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) Transformation Plan to NHS England.
This transformation plan highlights how the improvement of children's health and wellbeing is essential to give every child the best start in life and support them in achieving the best health and wellbeing outcomes possible. We will continue to work in partnership with the children and young people of Surrey and their families, to ensure the services we provide meet their needs and deliver the outcomes they have identified.
