Greg meets head of new young people's mental health service

Greg met the Chief Executive of the new provider of the local young people's mental health service, John Brouder.

The contract for the new service starts on 1 September 2017.

Greg said:

"Given that we have suffered from an inadequate Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for far too long, I wanted to meet the Chief Executive of the NHS Trust chosen to run the new service as soon as possible.

"He told me that they want to transform the service to make it much more community based and with a single point of referral which should make it easier and simpler for schools, GPs and families to access services.

"I told him that I welcome this approach but made it very clear to him that I will be keeping a close eye on them as I want to see is a marked improvement."

Contracts have been awarded for two local mental health services – a new young people's mental health service and all-age eating disorders service – in Kent & Medway.

The organisation providing these two new services will be North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT).
