Crisis Assessment Service (CAS)

This is an exciting opportunity within our working age acute services for a Consultant to work alongside three other consultant psychiatrists in the Crisis Resolution Intensive Support Service (CRISS) in Leeds.

The post holder will be based within the Crisis Resolution arm of the wider CRISS service. The Crisis Resolution Service works alongside the Section 136 service and the Crisis Assessment Unit (also at the Becklin Centre).

The CRISS model became operational in March 2019 and now provides assessment and intensive support for acute mental health problems in working age adults, as well as for older adults out of hours, with the support of the OPS Consultant on call.

The model’s service specifications were developed following an extensive community redesign task project which included stakeholder feedback events. The new model also incorporates the Core Fidelity Standards of Crisis Resolution services developed by University College London and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
