Kirklees CAMHS are currently in the process of reviewing and redesigning their service offer for the Neurodevelopmental pathway. You will play a key role in the development of ADHD services with a commitment to ensuring the delivery of a high-quality service. You will lead the nursing contribution to the development of the ADHD provision for children and young people in Kirklees as part of a wider service investment in trainee ACP’s and Non-Medical Prescribers.
You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team involved in the assessment and diagnosis of suspected Neurodevelopmental conditions. You will use your advanced clinical skills and knowledge to explore appropriate treatment and care options where a diagnosis of ADHD has been given. You will work as an autonomous prescriber where you will effectively manage a dedicated caseload.
