Could you give me the figures for waiting times for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)?
Specifically, I am looking for an update on the waiting times mentioned on pages 40 and 41 of the following report:
Health, Social Security and Housing Scrutiny Panel report S.R.5/2014
Could you show the waiting times since the last CAMHS report was published?
And could you also share any plans to improve waiting times for the service?
A and B
Validated waiting times data for CAMHS routine referrals is available from September 2015. Data prior to this date would require a manual records trawl which would exceed the cost limit specified by regulations.
The waiting times below are calculated from the date a referral is received to the date of the first initial assessment offered. The average number of days is then rounded to the nearest whole week.

The Mental Health Strategy is available online at the link below and outlines the ongoing work to improve the CAMHS service.
