NEL Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) plans

The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health and the NHS Long Term Plan, set by NHS England, prioritise children and young people and family mental health to make sure integrated care systems (ICS) aspire for parity of esteem, as well as aim to balance the impact of social and health inequalities and local need.

The merging of the seven clinical commissioning groups in north east London (NEL) has presented an opportunity to take stock of the challenges we have experienced over the last few years and plan to respond through transformation of our services and innovative ways of working.

To support this, we are publishing our Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) plans that outline our proposals for our eight local authority areas.

This documents can be downloaded below, including an Executive Summary providing an overview of our challenges and direction of travel across north east London.
