This is a great opportunity to develop Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services for children and young people in Islington.

Islington CCG and the London Borough of Islington are committed to improving the emotional health and well-being of children and young people and are already delivering a range of strong integrated services across universal, targeted and specialist settings in partnership with a range of key stakeholders.

We have a challenging CAMHS Transformation Plan that we need to ensure is delivered which includes delivery of the national access target / developments in crisis care and development of services for vulnerable children and young people.

It is essential that in all of the above, you put children and young people first, and that you are fully committed to involving them in service design and delivery where possible.

Our Children’s Commissioning Team works across the CCG and the Local Authority and is responsible for supporting the CCG’s Clinical Leads in all of their commissioning of children’s health services.

We work closely with the CCG’s Lead GP for Children who is a first class champion for Children’s Services.

In order to complete the skill set in our team, we are looking for an enthusiastic energetic and experienced CAMHS Commissioner to take forward our local plans.

You will need to be able to demonstrate personal authority as a result of commissioning / operational management experience and a genuine commitment to driving up the quality of Child and Adolescent Mental services in order to improve outcomes for children and young people.

If you meet the following criteria:
• experienced CAMHS Commissioner enthusiastic about improving outcomes for children and young people
• have the confidence and personal authority to work as part of a small, but far reaching team
…then we want to hear from you.
