Children and young people: Improving access to health and wellbeing services

A new partnership is bringing together emotional wellbeing services across the county for children, young people and their families, to improve access and support.

From 1 July, local services will be provided by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) under a partnership agreement with Cambridgeshire Community Service NHS Trust, Centre 33 and Ormiston Families.

Together they will bring their expertise to support children and young people aged 0 to 25 with their mental health and wellbeing.

Children and young people will continue to receive mental health and emotional support during the transition of services to the new partnership, and patients should be assured they will continue to get the same level of care as they do now.

Patients who will be seen by the new integrated service will be contacted in due course.

A spokesperson for partnership said: “We know how important mental health support is for our children, young people and their families and we are committed to investing further in local services, which is why we have set up a new partnership to bring together mental and emotional health services for children and young people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

“Over the coming months we will be working with this partnership to improve the mental health support offer for our 0 to 25 year olds, and we will be listening to children, young people and their families’ experiences to ensure we put their needs first.”
