Berkshire Healthcare's vision is to provide the best care in the right place; developing and delivering excellent services in local communities with people and their families to improve their health, well-being, and independence. We pride ourselves in recruiting staff who display our values and the right behaviours and work hard to create a culture which respects all our staff for the unique contribution they make to ensuring high quality care is delivered.

The East Berkshire Local Transformation Plan (LTP) for Children and Young People's Mental Health and Well-being to which Berkshire Healthcare are a key partner stipulates the intention to:
  • Develop an early intervention model so that children and young people will have access to early help to meet any emerging emotional and mental health needs.
  • Establish a co-ordinated and jointly commissioned approach for early intervention mental health support to reduce the reliance on specialist CAMHS.

Berkshire Healthcare CAMHS have been commissioned to provide a small team of clinically qualified CAMHS therapists in each of the 3 Local Authorities in Berkshire East and 3 School Mental Health Support Teams (part of the national MHST Wave 2 and Wave 4 programme).

In Bracknell the Getting Help Team is employed and supervised by Berkshire Healthcare CAMHS but based within the individual local authority early help hubs and working within the community. The developing MHST will also be employed and supervised by Berkshire Healthcare and will serve 14 selected schools in Bracknell. This team will be operational in September 2021. Both teams will add to and extend existing early help resource to:
  • Offer an integrated pathway at early help level, reducing the fragmentation that exists within the current system and enhancing the evidence-based clinical offer.
  • Coordinate existing emotional wellbeing and early help mental health services in the locality; creating a cohesive multi-agency single point of entry and triage hub for referrals for 'Getting Help' support; to minimise the number of these referrals being sent to CAMHS CPE and reduce the demand on specialist CAMH service
  • To ensure clear and smooth clinical care pathways across agencies and through all domains of the THRIVE model, enabling clinical care to be delivered.
  • Coordinate the current emotional wellbeing and mental health training offer to better upskill the wider system workforce to enable prevention and early intervention of behavioural and mental health difficulties.
  • Open up workforce development opportunities for the Berkshire East system, utilising the current Health Education England funded CYP IAPT programmes for the development of low intensity therapists.

Working collaboratively with identified leads in each LA, the post holder will lead the development, implementation and clinical care delivery of the Bracknell CAMHS Getting Help Team and the MHST services.

The post is employed by Berkshire Healthcare CAMHS but with accountability to the East Berkshire Joint Management Board.
