Evaluation Panel Opportunities

As the CAMHS redesign progresses we are starting to arrange panels to evaluate the proposed changes as a result of the redesign. We are in early stages of planning but want to share the opportunity for people to be involved. We are keen for children and young people to evaluate the proposed changes and have their say, so any child or young person can get involved, whether they have used CAMHS services or not. We will also be recruiting for panel members on the carers and family members’ panel as well as third sector and faith members.
