Inpatient CAMHS

At Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, we provide specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) inpatient care, from a single site at our Parkview Clinic in Moseley, Birmingham.

Our care approach

Our services are delivered in line with NHS England national service specifications and follow safe, effective evidence-based practice to ensure a positive patient and family experience.

We take a single model approach to supporting patients. Therapies are delivered within an agreed timeframe, comprising of generic therapies that will benefit all patients, as well as more tailored individual and group therapies.

Support for patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Accreditation We also have expertise in delivering services for children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), having become one of only two NHS inpatient services in the country to have received Autism Accreditation from the National Autistic Society. The award means that you can be confident we provide consistent, high quality care for young people with ASD alongside significant mental health difficulties. Six out of every ten young people admitted to our service have underlying social communication difficulties/ASD, so it's important that we're able to support them effectively.

Other accreditation

Our service is regularly reviewed by QNIC (Quality Network for Inpatient CAMHS) to ensure we meet national standards for quality of care. We also believe that clinical outcomes, such as the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales for Children and Adolescents (HoNOSCA) score, provide a valuable indication of the quality of our treatment programmes.
