HPFT shortlisted for HSJ Partnership Award

04 Jan 21

The CAMHS Access Assessment and Brief Interventions Team at Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) is delighted to be a finalist in this year’s National Health Service Journal Partnership Awards (HSJ) which recognise outstanding contributions to healthcare.

The team has been shortlisted in the Most Effective Contribution to Clinical Redesign Award.


Since its formation in July 2019, the CAMHS Access Assessment and Brief Interventions Team has reduced waiting times for accessing CAMHS services and treatment. The team has been able to quickly triage referrals and pick up those cases who could most benefit from brief intervention work. This has led to a quicker intervention being offered and has also prevented young people being placed on the waiting list for assessment.

HPFT’s Executive Director of Service Delivery and Service User Experience Sandra Brookes said: “We’re delighted to see the team being recognised by the HSJ in this way. They are listening to young people and their families and are working hard to keep improving our CAMHS services in collaboration with them. They have already achieved so much, in a relatively short space of time and I wish them every success at the finals next May.”
