'We call on the next Welsh Government to ensure parity between Physical and Mental Health Services.'
We would like:
In June 2020, we held focus groups with our child and adult psychiatry faculties to understand more about transitions between CAMHS and AMHS. Our focus groups have demonstrated to us that whilst there is guidance for transitions, it is not uniformly implemented, and disagreement and differences between services often prolong transitions unnecessarily. Our focus group agreed that a joint protocol between services would reduce friction in transitions and provide needed clarity and consensus for clinicians.
