Children, young people and maternity services
Children and young people
Our aim is to commission an excellent model of service provision for children and young people (0-18 years) that incorporates those universal services for all children, services for children with additional / special needs and children and young people who require services from the Devon Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).Child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) transformation plan
NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group recently published our Transformation Plan for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
It sets out our commissioning strategy, priorities and plans to transform the support and services offered to children and young people over a five year period, commencing this year.
The plan has been developed by the CCG working with partners and providers and taking into account the views of children and young people.

The strategy clearly demonstrates the commitment the CCG makes to women and their families at this important time to ensure babies receive the best start in life. We clearly recognise the importance this has not only at the time of birth, but for the rest of families’ lives.
Maternity Services Liaison Committee (MSLC)
To help us develop maternity services with those families using the service, the CCG is committed to ensuring that there is a Maternity Services Liaison Committee (MSLC) in each locality of Devon.Click here to find out more about the MSLC
The MSLC is a team of individuals involved in improving and developing local maternity services. It includes representatives from:
This is the key opportunity for you to make your views known to clinicians and commissioners, and to contribute to change. The committee meets regularly within each area and includes not only discussion on local services, but can invite speakers to discuss a key topic such as infant feeding, emotional health & well being, etc.
The aim is to ensure that members who have experience of maternity services can contribute to being part of the committee; however the session is open for all to attend, and to meet in venues across the locality, either at children's centres or at the local hospital.
The CCG is keen to hear your views: we want you to help us shape maternity services.
What you tell us is vital to help us develop services now and in the future. We therefore would like to hear what you thought about maternity care : before, during and after your baby’s birth.
