What happened?

North Kirklees and Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Groups with Kirklees Council are working with services to co-produce and improve the Kirklees Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services often referred to as CAMHS.

Our long-term visions are in the 2015 Kirklees Future in Mind Transformation Plan and the October 2016 Refreshed Plan. The plans and other information are available at

Your contribution was important to us and identified several issues that need considering to help improve services.

71 responses were received. Some questions encouraged open comments which provided some unique personal perspectives. The analysis report can be seen by choosing the link to the right of this page.

The most prevalent themes were around waiting times, a need to improve communications, improved consistency when managing patients and the referral pathways being confusing and too complicated.

Open responses communicate important messages which need considering by local services and decision makers.

What difference did the work make?

The survey ended in December 2016. An analysis report has been shared with CAMHS providers and commissioners to take suitable actions over the coming months.

The report will be considered by commissioners and service providers as part of the delivery of the new 0 -19 Kirklees Integrated Healthy Child Programme following its start on 1st April 2017. More information can be found by selecting the associated web link

The survey identified 35 people who said they wanted to be involved in future transformation work. We consider this an essential as part of our co-production approaches. These people will be communicated with directly
