Northpoint Wellbeing are an independent charity. We are commissioned to provide a range of therapeutic services, including part of the Calderdale CAMHS service (now known as the Open Minds Partnership).

The triage worker will provide operational support to the single point of access and will act as part of the triage team which process referrals into the service. The main aim of the role is to identify the needs and strengths of young people who are referred to CAMHS, and to help them access services/resources which will meet their needs and help them to thrive.

The postholder will support the service to provide young people, families and professionals with prompt, helpful and positive outcomes to their referrals.

Referral information is recorded on an electronic patient management system.

The triage worker will be based in our busy office in central Halifax and will work as part of a friendly and supportive team which includes admin support, CAMHS clinicians and an FPOC co-ordinator.
