We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


Buckinghamshire Child and Adolescents Mental Health Service (CAMHS) are offering you an excellent opportunity to join our ‘Getting More Help’ pathway as a Senior Mental Health Practitioner, based in either our High Wycombe or Aylesbury offices. The service is based on the ‘Thrive model’, and we have partnered with the charity Barnardo’s to ensure a value based collaborative approach to service delivery.

You will be working in a community based team delivering a service to children, young people and their families in a supportive and lively multidisciplinary team, where differences in training are respected and valued. You will have the opportunity to play a significant role in the delivery of a modernised and comprehensive service.

As a team we routinely have trainees and students, and our clinicians value their role in supporting the development of others and working alongside colleagues from different professions.  

The post requires an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual who is willing to make a real change. Do you have a ‘can do’ attitude and are quality focused? Are you enthusiastic, motivated and ready for a challenge, possess excellent communication and organisational skills? Then you are the person we are looking for!
