Our clients in North East London are urgently seeking to recruit a
Locum Band 6 or 7 CPN to join their CAMHS Service.
Hours: Monday to Friday - 9am to 5pm.
Job Description
The purpose of the Single Point of Access (SPA) is to assess children and young people being referred to CAMHS to ascertain the most appropriate service to meet their needs. The post requires significant clinical and organisational skills. You will adhere to the goals of ‘No wrong Front Door’ and support the operations of the SPA team who seek to identify the right service for a young person at the right time, and ensure a smooth and timely response/screening for all new referrals into CAMHS.
The SPA and Brief Intervention Clinician will work with front line administrators and senior colleagues to identify presenting needs, manage risk and support young people and parents referred to CAMHS. This will involve liaising with children, young people, parents, carers and professionals at the point of their referral as well as when issues arise during the wait for treatment. We have developed a system of screening/triage delivered by therapists to help identify treatment needs and assess risk. The post-holder will play an integral role in the MDT as well as undertaking telephone triage, clinical assessments and some brief interventions themselves. The post-holder will be well supported in this role by senior colleagues particularly in risk assessment and management.
