North CAMHS offers specialist CAMH assessment, treatment and outstanding patient care to the children and young people of Worcestershire, working closely with their families as well as other agencies. We work in partnership with the children and young people to ensure that we can offer appropriate mental health care that meets their needs.

This post would be excellent for someone who wishes to build community experience in this specialist area and for those wishing to take their current skills and experience further.

You will need to be able to demonstrate how you can transfer your professional skills into a community CAMHS setting and feel confident in assessing and managing mental health risk. You may wish to explore developing further learning and experience within evidence based modalities whilst delivering outstanding care.

The role will be mainly clinic based in Redditch but as you are a part of a wider service you may be expected to offer care over North CAMHS as well as Worcestershire. The role will expect you to work as an autonomous practitioner carrying a clinical caseload, whilst being supported by your colleagues and you will be required to take part in the CAMHS SPA (Single Point of Access) rota.

We will offer you management and clinical supervision as well as team support and share our enthusiasm for the care we provide.

If you think that you have the required experience and interest to meet the duties identified in the job description and meet the requirements of the person specification then we want to hear from you.

For an informal discussion regarding the post please contact Jim Hughes, CAMHS team Leader or Andy Tonks, CAMHS Nurse for CAMHS North both on 01527 488650
