The requirement is for psychological and psychiatric assessments of parents / carers and children to take place prior to the start of /during care proceedings (on occasion the service may be required where proceedings are already underway). Recent legislative changes have introduced a 26-week maximum time limit for care proceedings (although extensions of up to 8-weeks can be granted by the judiciary in exceptional circumstances). The expectation is that this 26-week time limit will be achievable in the majority of cases
because local authority children’s services will have completed much of the necessary assessment (and intervention) work prior to issuing proceedings,
including expert psychological and psychiatric assessments of parents / carers and children when required. Where it has not been possible to complete
assessments pre proceedings, these may be commissioned post application.Please register your interest in being included on the Authority’s list of approved providers for this service by completing the attached PQQ and submitting by clicking on “View Discussions”, and then “Create New Message”.
