Temporary arrangements during Covid-19 Pandemic

During this time when we are all trying to cope with the impact of COVID 19.  The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and the Children’s Early Intervention Service (CEIS) will be continuing to offer services. With Social Distancing advice, this will be offered in a different way.  We will continue to offer initial Choice assessment appointments and intervention via telephone or video sessions where possible.  Face to face appointments will continue to take place if this is necessary following a risk assessment and COVID-19 screening questionnaire.  Our Crisis and Eating Disorder Service’s continue to operate as normal, with the exception of assessments and reviews being facilitated by telephone where this is possible.

Families and Young people can continue to access our service through the usual referral pathway (G.P, Social Worker, other healthcare professional etc.).

We appreciate and thank everyone for the support that we continue to receive at this difficult time, and commit to resuming our service when we are advised it is safe to do so.

This information is subject to change and will be reviewed and updated accordingly.
