Clinical and Care Professional Leads for CYP Mental Health & Emotional Wellbeing
We are recruiting clinical and care professional leads for Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing to support South East London ICB in the development and implementation of system transformation priorities for children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing services.
The South East London Integrated Care System (ICS) brings together the health and care partners that serve our vibrant and highly diverse populations resident in the London boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.
Our vision for the ICS is a high performing, sustainable system that looks after its staff, responds to its communities and takes action to reduce the inequalities they experience. As a new organisation we have developed a system development plan https://www.ourhealthiersel.nhs.uk/SDP-8-November-2021.pdf that outlines the way in which we seek to operate and the steps we will take to realise the full potential of our partnership.
A key part of this new organisation and its success will be the involvement and development of its clinical and care professional (CCP) leadership resource, all of whom will be expected to model behaviour that is fully aligned with these principles.
The ICS has a well-established mental health transformation programme which oversees delivery and expansion of mental health services in line with the ambitions set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. This includes improving crisis care, community mental health services, perinatal and maternal mental health services, improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT) and children and young people’s mental health services.
The mental health transformation programme is seeking several clinical and care professionals to lead, develop and support the mental health transformation agenda as we move formally into an integrated care system.
The post holder(s) will be key in:
- Providing leadership support to the ICS’ CYPMH Network and CYPMH Delivery Group
- Advising on a system wide transformation plan for children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing services.
- Supporting partners across the system in considering opportunities for improving services for children and young people through expanding local, Place-based services and better integrating voluntary and community sector partners into service delivery. This includes supporting system partners to embed the iThrive framework, develop single points of access at Place and consider how best to expand the mental health support offer in schools and local models of care through primary care expansion.
- Developing the ICS’ approach in improving care for young people aged 16-25.
