Winchester and Test Valley CAMHS

Everyone Counts Team Award - Clinical


The team were presented this award for their focus on staff wellbeing and supporting each other.

Winchester and Test Valley CAMHS have made wellbeing a focus for their team, which includes regular discussions about how to look after themselves and considers everyone as an individual, not just a member of staff. 

The team has recognised that in order to deliver excellent care it’s absolutely essential to put themselves first and recognise the importance of self-care.

The team celebrates each other’s successes, supports through challenges and encourages colleagues in opportunities to develop. They have also implemented a system to celebrate outstanding practice, which team members can nominate each other for. 

Since these changes have been implemented the team has seen an improvement in performance, and they have successfully implemented new ideas and delivery models to help improve the service they provide for children, young people and families. 

In describing the team, their nominator said: ‘They are all dedicated, determined, they take responsibility, they are invested in the work of the team and the recovery of children and young people who come here; they celebrate and support one in another in difficult and challenging circumstances and they always find positives in each other and in each other’s work and I feel this is worth celebrating. I feel proud to work with them.’
