The initial services to be part of the Single Point of Access are CAMHS, Health Visiting and School Nursing, and Action for Children.
CaFSPA aims to simplify the way children, young people, their families or carers seek care, support, and guidance, while also streamlining how health and care professionals, alongside others can make a referral.
CaFSPA will triage information provided to understand the needs of the child, young person, and their families.
The team will make further contact with the young person or family if further information is required to identify a team best placed to offer appropriate support.
More teams will join the single point of access in the future.
