Main duties of the job
The Collaborative is a provider led partnership that commissions all inpatient CAMHS services (including General Adolescent, Adolescent Psychiatric Intensive Care, Eating Disorder, Low secure and Learning Disability & Autistic Spectrum Condition) for young people living in North Central and East London.
The ambitions of our Collaborative are:
Improve continuity in patient pathways and ensure that financial incentives are focused on high quality and clinically effective patient outcomes.
Ensure services are locally and clinically led, giving local health systems the freedom to innovate to improve services, whilst maintaining national consistency in clinical standards and quality.
Continue to reduce inappropriate out of area placements, avoidable admissions and lengths of stay; and to improve outcomes and experience for children, young people and others using services, including their families and carers.
Where admissions are required, they should be as short as possible, close to home in a high quality, safe and therapeutic service
Improve value for money in specialised mental health spending and reinvest savings in CAMHS community and crisis services, and links with the wider Children Wellbeing networks.
Create a basis for, and achieve further integration with, other local commissioners and locally commissioned mental health services.
Reinvest savings made through improvements in care such as reduced out of area placements into community services for the local population.
Our mission is to make a positive difference to people's lives by improving the quality of life for all we serve. Our values are: We Care, We Respect, We are Inclusive - so we are looking for people who live and breathe these qualities when supporting service users and carers, and in their relationships with colleagues in the Trust and our partner organisations
