Priority One Team

What does the Priority one Team do

The team provides rapid (within 1 week of referral) assessments and, when appropriate, treatment of all children and young people at risk of serious self-harm, psychotic illness or who present a serious risk of violence to others. The team also provides consultations to other teams within CAMHS.

  • Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist  from Community CAMHS (Chair)
  • AOT Psychiatrist (monthly)
  • Psychiatric CT2/3 Doctor
  • CAMHS Outreach Workers (2 nurses and a generic mental health worker)
  • Systemic  Psychotherapist
