Calderdale CCG and Calderdale Council wish to commission services that provide the right care, at the right time in the right place for the people of Calderdale which is delivered by staff with the competencies and skills to meet the needs of children/young people.
The CCG seeks service providers to bring our vision to life, we are not being prescriptive in terms of:
— Service model/ provider approach;
— Delivery teams/roles;
— Numbers of specific staff;
— Location of services.
Services for children and young people should place them and their parents/carers at the heart of everything they do. Our local need and vision for a Calderdale CAMHS are:
Adopt a whole system, person-centred approach;
Develop resilience in children/young people to prevent the need of escalation into core specialist services;
Strengthen partnership working;
Provide earlier intervention and prevention;
Improve service delivery and demand;
Ensure local and timely access to services through reducing waiting times by using a range of technology;
Ensuring value for money.
Calderdale’s future CAMHS provider will use a whole system rather than a tiered approach. The new services will fit around children and young people’s needs and described outcomes rather than service tiers, ensuring children, young people and families are active decision makers in the process of choosing the right approach. The focus of this specification will be through the management of the outcome measures which will be included in the contract.
The service will be for children and young people up to age 0-18 (or 25 years for those with special educational needs).
