Model of service

The Nurse in Charge at Skye House will take initial responsibility for managing referrals of young people up to age 17 years (inclusive), except for paediatric inpatients in the Royal Hospital for Children.

Paediatric inpatient facilities will have direct access to the 2nd on-call in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry whatever the age of the patient.

The Nurse in Charge will be able to offer advice to referrers, and where appropriate, signposting to alternative support services.

For young people requiring emergency mental health assessment, the Nurse in Charge can arrange this via the following options:

  • Joint assessment by Nurse in Charge and 1st on call doctor at local psychiatric hospital sites

Monday - Friday

5pm - 9am

Saturday & Sunday

9am - 9am

Public Holidays

9am - 9pm

  • CAMHS Crisis Service (providing nursing assessment in Emergency departments across NHSGGC)
  • Assessment by 2nd on call doctor for under 12 year olds, presenting outwith hours of CAMHS Crisis Service. Patients presenting at Emergency Department will be seen by the Crisis Service initially.   

The Nurse in Charge, 1st on-call doctor and Crisis Service, will have access to additional support and supervision from:

  • 2nd on call (higher trainee) in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 3rd on call Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Greater Glasgow and Clyde
  • On-call Charge Nurse (for practical support during peaks in assessment activity)
  • On call Senior Managers

Children under 12 years old Greater Glasgow and Clyde

*except for paediatric inpatients-see above

Children under 12 years will be seen at the Royal Hospital for Children

All referral details to be taken by Nurse in Charge at Skye House, contactable via Royal Hospital for Children switchboard. Nurse in Charge will liaise with CAMHS Crisis Service to arrange assessment.

Outwith Crisis Service working hours, the 2nd on call doctor for CAMHS will provide assessment.

12- 17 years (inclusive) Greater Glasgow and Clyde

*except for paediatric inpatients-see above

All referrals for emergency assessments should initially be directed to Nurse in Charge at Skye House, contactable via switchboard at Royal Hospital for Children, who will arrange assessment as noted below:

  • Monday-Friday 5pm-8pm: Joint assessment by Nurse in Charge and 1st on call doctor at sector adult psychiatric hospital site
  • Weekends and Public Holidays  8am-8pm: Joint assessment by Nurse in Charge and 1st on call doctor at sector adult psychiatric hospital site
  • Monday-Sunday 8pm-8am: Assessment by CAMHS Crisis Service in Emergency Departments

Outwith the working hours of the Crisis Team, for patients who are unable to travel to the psychiatric base site due to medical or psychiatric reasons, or where it is considered unsafe to transfer the young person, the Nurse in Charge and 1st on call doctor will discuss how best to proceed. This may require the 2nd on call doctor undertaking the psychiatric assessment in the Acute Hospital site.

If the patient refuses to travel or is generally non-compliant with regards to assessment, Emergency Department medical staff will make a clinical decision whether to discharge the patient without assessment.

Following assessment by either 1st on call or Crisis Service, if a second opinion is required from the 2nd on call doctor, they should be contacted by telephone to arrange this.

 

Referral criteria

Age Range

Referrers

0 – 17 years inclusive in Greater Glasgow and Clyde

Glasgow and Clyde general hospital wards and Emergency departments

GEMS

Social Work standby service

Police Surgeon

Patients from other Health Board areas are generally not accepted unless presenting to a Greater Glasgow and Clyde Emergency Department or as a current inpatient. Referrers of patients resident in Glasgow and Clyde who present at sites in other Health Board areas should be advised to contact the CAMH Service for that area.

Referrals from other Health Boards may be considered if the referrer is a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist seeking inpatient admission of a child or young person in an emergency. Inpatient units are hosted on behalf of national and regional commissioners. Consideration for admission to the inpatient units would depend upon the bed status and the nature of the referral and such referrals should be discussed with the on-call Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist for Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

In the event that no age appropriate bed is available within CAMHS in-patient units, consideration should be given to the most appropriate placement of the child or young person. Where appropriate (based on the patients age), the Nurse in Charge should make efforts to locate a bed within adult mental health services in the patient’s local board area. For younger children, who cannot safely be accommodated in an adult bed, discussion with the Senior Manager on call should take place, to discuss sourcing a bed in other young person’s units in Dundee or Edinburgh. Consideration must also be given to availability of staff to facilitate escort arrangements.

  • Self referrals are not accepted.
  • Referrals from staff at secure units are not accepted. Secure units should refer to GEMS.

Please note that we do not offer an Out-of-Hours service to Argyll and Bute patients but we will see any patient who presents to Inverclyde Royal Hospital Emergency Department Out-of-Hours.

Referral contact details

First point of contact for all Out of Hours Referrals is
Royal Hospital for Children switchboard:

0141 201 0000

The Royal Hospital for Children Switchboard will differentiate between under 12’s and 12-17 year olds; (i) redirecting under 12’s in NHSGGC to Royal Hospital for Children and (ii) directing calls relating to 12-17 year olds in NHSGGC to Nurse in Charge at Skye House.

Transfer of patients protocol

During hours of Monday – Sunday 8pm-8am, patients will be assessed at presenting Emergency Department by the CAMHS Crisis Service. 

Outwith these hours, a safe and effective system to transfer patients between sites has been agreed:

Under 12 year olds

  • Can only be transferred to Royal Hospital for Children

12-17 year olds Greater Glasgow and Clyde

  • Most Acute Hospital sites have no 1st on call for psychiatry available, and young people over 12 years may require to be transferred to local adult psychiatric hospital site for assessment.

 

For 12-17 Year Olds Presenting at...

Transfer to...

Glasgow Royal Infirmary

Skye House, Stobhill Hospital

Royal Alexandra Hospital(unless postcode sector of Leverndale or Gartnavel Royal Hospital)

Dykebar Hospital

Royal Alexandra Hospital (postcode sector of Leverndale or Gartnavel Royal Hospital)

Leverndale Hospital or Gartnavel Royal Hospital, depending on postcode*

Queen Elizabeth University Hospital

Local Adult psychiatric hospital depending on postcode

Royal Hospital for Children aged over 12 years

Local Adult psychiatric hospital depending on postcode

Inverclyde Royal

Inverclyde Royal

*Patients with a Vale of Leven postcode will be assessed at Gartnavel Royal Hospital by the non-resident 1st on call for General Adult psychiatry for Vale of Leven hospital. All other patients who are transferred to Gartnavel Royal Hospital for assessment will be seen by 1st on call in General Psychiatry for Gartnavel Royal

The young person/carer will be told where to present to if a telephone call is made prior to presenting. Patients presenting with families or carers will be asked to make their own arrangements to travel to the appropriate site, unless there are clinical reasons to indicate that a Nurse escort is required. This is the responsibility of the referring clinician to determine.

For young people presenting alone who need to be transferred, the NIC from Skye House should be phoned and will take responsibility for organising Nursing staff to collect and accompany the young person to the appropriate site (only if the young person is agreeable to the transfer, is compliant with the assessment process and is not presenting with a known or suspected risk of violence or aggression). This service is for transfer only and is not for the purpose of providing a level of enhanced nursing observations for the young person once they have arrived at site of transfer. The transfer will be by taxi and will be accessed through either Ward 4, Royal Hospital for Children or Skye House budget code.

Detained patients will require a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) escort for transfer and this will be organised by the NIC at Skye House

Bed management systems

If admission is required, the NIC at Skye House will identify available beds. In the first instance, a bed will be sought at Skye House or Ward 4, Royal Hospital for Children, dependent on the age of the child or young person. If a bed is not available (including pass beds), a bed should be sought in locality Adult Mental Health ward, or if no local bed available, appropriate contact should be made with one of the other two Young Person’s Units in Scotland.

The Consultant on call should contact the CAMHS Manager on call (via switchboard) for verbal agreement to admit a patient to a bed within a psychiatric hospital outwith NHSGGC. Out-of-Area Referral Form to be completed and submitted to the Clinical Director and Head of Service on the following working day.

The CAMHS Bed Manager should be updated the following morning by the NIC.

Out of Area Referral Application Form (Word document)

Self harm

The Following process should be followed for patients presenting with Self Harm:

Under 12 years old

Children should be physically assessed by the on-call paediatric service in Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) at the Royal Hospital for Children. Paediatricians should make a decision on the need for a paediatric admission. Those requiring admission for physical treatment or observation should be referred for an evaluation the next working day by the Paediatric Liaison Psychiatry team (Royal Hospital for Children).

Intensive CAMHS (ICAMHS) will see under 12 year olds at the weekend who have self harmed.

Under 12’s presenting overnight, who are assessed as physically fit for discharge, can be assessed by CAMHS Crisis Service. A full psychiatric assessment, risk assessment and safety plan will be provided, along with consideration of any child protection concerns. If clinicians and family are confident that risk can be managed safely at home, then the child may be discharge with appropriate follow up arrangements in place. 

All referrals for input by Crisis Service should be via contact with Nurse in Charge at Skye House in first instance (07767 392206)

For children where there is significant distress or any ongoing concern over safety, it is appropriate to admit overnight to Clinical Decisions Unit, awaiting further assessment by iCAMHS next day.

Some children may require psychiatric assessment by the 2nd on-call doctor at the request of the paediatric staff or ICAMHS.

12-17 year olds in NHSGGC

Patients presenting with self-harm in Greater Glasgow and Clyde between 9:00am and 18:30 Monday-Friday and between 9.00am and 17:00 Saturday-Sunday should be referred to the Intensive CAMHS Team.

Those presenting after 18:30 Mon-Fri and after 17:00 Sat/Sun aged under 16 years should be assessed at the Emergency Department at Royal Hospital for Children. Those patients requiring admission for medical treatment or observation should be referred for psychiatric assessment by iCAMHS the following day.

Young people aged 12-17 years, presenting overnight, who are assessed as medically fit for discharge, can be assessed by CAMHS Crisis Service. A full psychiatric assessment, risk assessment and safety plan will be provided, along with consideration of any child protection concerns. If clinicians and family are confident that risk can be managed safely at home, then the child may be discharged with appropriate follow up arrangements in place.

All referrals for input by Crisis Service should be via contact with Nurse in Charge at Skye House in first instance (07767 392206)

For young people where there is ongoing distress or a concern over safety, it is appropriate to admit overnight to Clinical Decisions Unit, awaiting further assessment by iCAMHS next day.

N.B. Patients aged 12-15 who present at the Royal Alexandria Hospital after 18:30 hours should be transferred to the Clinical Decision Unit at Royal Hospital for Children. The responsibility for the transport of the patient to the NHSGGC Royal Hospital for Children will lie with the Royal Alexandria Hospital.

Suitability of units for young people

Some units within Greater Glasgow and Clyde where the young person will be assessed also provide services to adult psychiatric patients. It is important to assure the safety and protection of any young people who will attend an assessment at these sites.

Confirmation of suitability for assessment for young people from the sites has been obtained.

RHC paediatric support

Royal Hospital for Children colleagues in medical paediatrics or the Emergency Department may be asked for urgent medical support for Ward 4 patients when the Higher Trainee is already committed to another task and medical input is required. If there is a psychiatric emergency and the 2nd on-call is not available, the 3rd on-call will be called.

It is the responsibility of the hospital to which the patient has been admitted to organise Nursing cover (principle set out in NHSGGC Psychiatric Emergency Plan) unless the patient has been transferred to the hospital by Skye House in which case the responsibility will lie with Skye House.

It would be expected that a psychiatric assessment by the 2nd on call would be made in the first instance to determine the level of nursing input required, unless this has been arranged in advance. If there are difficulties getting access to appropriate nursing input the On Call manager for GGC CAMHS should be contacted.

Psychiatric nursing support for patients in general wards

If psychiatric nursing support for a child or young person admitted to a ward in district general hospitals is required it is the responsibility of the hospital to which the patient has been admitted to organise Nursing cover (principle set out in NHSGGC Psychiatric Emergency Plan), unless the patient has been transferred to the hospital by Skye House in which case the responsibility will lie with Skye House.

It would be expected that a psychiatric assessment by the 2nd on call would be made in the first instance to determine the level of nursing input required, unless this has been arranged in advance. If there are difficulties getting access to appropriate nursing input, the on call manager for GGC CAMHS should be contacted.

Lone working - all staff groups

Please follow the NHSGGC Policy on Lone Working (follow Hyperlink below to HR Connect).

NHSGGC : Lone Working

Nurse in Charge at Skye House can be the point of contact for CAMHS clinicians working out of hours. 

Handover

1st   and 2nd  on-call doctors, NIC and Crisis Service nurses should make sure that details of any clinical contact from the on-call period are given to the appropriate CAMHS team the next working day. This should include (i) a full mental state assessment, (ii) risk assessment and safety plan.  The NIC on duty at Skye House on the following day can co-ordinate this handover.

The CAMHS Bed Manager should be informed of any Out of Hours child and adolescent admissions.

Communication - out of hours service to day service teams

Following an out of hours contact, the band 6 NIC will ensure there is an appropriate handover to the duty person in the Locality CAMHS team the following morning. Clinical notes should be entered directly into EMIS wherever possible, however if EMIS access is not available to the assessing clinician, written clinical notes can be scanned and e-mailed to the NIC e-mail account using a secure e-mail address. The NIC will then upload these to EMIS.

All CAMHS teams operate a duty rota, where a member of staff is available to deal with urgent referrals.

The band 6 NIC will, when required, contact and handover to the Intensive Community and Homebased CAMHS Service (ICAMHS) to pick up should this intervention, alongside Community CAMHS referral, be required. ICAMHS referrals should be emailed to ICAMHS administration support and copied to ICAMHS team lead and discussed further with the ICAMHS duty nurse at 9am.

Self Harm cases should be referred to ICAMHS or to their local Tier 3 CAMHS team (if they are open to them) who should make contact with the patient the following day.

The Paediatric Liaison Team based in the Royal Hospital for Children will see any young person admitted to RHC for psychiatric review.

The NIC will not be expected to create a new EMIS record if one has not already been created. New cases will be scanned and emailed to the relevant Duty person
