A new programme is being trialled which means that as a Child
& Adolescent mental health trainee, you’ll be able to complete
all of your training, from ST1 to ST6, in a single region.
Your programme will include time in paediatrics and you’ll be
assigned a senior child psychiatrist as a mentor.
The trial will initially run in the North West, Yorkshire, and
London regions and it’s hoped that run-through programmes will
later be extended across the country.
Pilot posts will be available via the national recruitment
round, with successful applicants taking up their posts in August
For further information, visit the Health
Education England North West website.
Thinking together is an exciting pilot
scheme linking paediatric and CAMHS trainees to improve
collaboration and address training gaps.
This proposal is primarily a learning
experience and a tool to provide trainees with another way of
achieving curriculum competencies. The project is to be taken
up widely across London and other centres in the country. Our hope
is that in the long-term Thinking together could help improve the
patient experience and may help to prevent onward referrals.
Following an initial successful pilot in
London, we are extending the scheme to four centres across the UK
from September 2017.
The scheme is designed to:
- Improve mental health in children and
- Improve collaboration and closer
working between Paediatrics and CAMHS
- Help achieve curriculum competencies that are
otherwise difficult to achieve in both specialties.
- Improve understanding of referral criteria
and navigation of local services.
