Many professionals working with children can access consultation and advice from a PIMHS in CAMHS. For example health visitors, children’s centres, social workers, Early Help in Bristol, First Point in South Gloucestershire, GPs and Community Paediatricians have existing arrangements under our core offer. A PIMHS will only get to know children and young people’s names if a parent or carer has consented to this and we recommend this as the best way to have an informed discussion. Otherwise a consultation will be anonymous and confidential without mentioning names.
PIMHS are located in each of the three CAMHS teams in Bristol: in North, South and East/Central, and in the South Glos CAMHS team. Each CAMHS team has one or more PIMHS who only work with pre-school aged children. PIMHS can be contacted at the CAMHS clinic in your area.
