The Lancashire and South Cumbria Children and Young People's Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Transformation team are currently working with providers to redesign mental health services.
The Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) Redesign covers all NHS funded mental health services for children and young people from birth to their 19th birthday in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The Children and Young People's Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health (CYPEWMH) Transformation Programme is a five-year programme of transformation work across Lancashire and South Cumbria. The programme requires effective working with a range of entities and organisations including eight CCGs, four Local Authorities, four NHS Trusts, hundreds of schools, a wide ranging third sector, primary care, community services and various children and young people’s support services and groups.
The CYPEWMH Transformation Programme sits within the Mental Health work stream of the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria (HLSC) Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and as such reports into the HLSC Programme Board.
The programme has a five-year Transformation Plan (2015-2020) that aims to improve the resilience, emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people, making it easier for them and their families to access help and support when they need it and improving the standard of mental health services across Lancashire.
The geographical area of Morecambe Bay is covered within two Local Transformation Plans – the Lancashire Transformation Plan which includes the North Lancashire part of NHS Morecambe Bay CCG and the Cumbria Transformation Plan which the South Cumbria part of NHS Morecambe Bay CCG is covered by. The plans are refreshed each year through co-production with children, young people, their families and carers and professionals. You can read the latest versions or the Easy Read versions of both plans here.
