The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness


What is the Quality Network for Community CAMHS?

The Quality Network for Community CAMHS (QNCC) is a members’ network which works with professionals from health, social services, education and the voluntary sector to improve the quality of CAMHS services. We are about to embark on a tenth year of working with CAMH services throughout the UK.

All types of community-based teams are eligible to join, including tier 2/targeted services, tier 3/specialist services, learning disability services and crisis and intensive services. Member teams evaluate their performance against our standards through a process of self and peer review. Participants are able to benchmark their practice against similar services across the UK, measure progress against key national policy and use the information from the review in trust Quality Accounts.


There are a range of membership options including discounted packages for three-year membership or multiple team membership. Teams also have the option of having an accreditation review, in order for your service to gain accreditation from the Royal College of Psychiatrists in recognition of good practice.



Benefits of membership include:


  • Demonstrate the quality of the service to young people, parents and carers, commissioners and the wider organisation
  • Demonstrate cost effectiveness to commissioners, and provide a framework for service level agreements – vital in the current economic climate
  • Demonstrate compliance with standards and best practice – our standards are mapped against CQC, You’re Welcome, GIRFEC, Healthcare Standards for Wales and other national guidance
  • Identify and address areas for improvement through our supportive action planning
  • Network and share best practice with CAMHS professionals across the UK
