There is anecdotal evidence of increasing waiting times in some areas. We do not know whether or not this is due to an increase in referrals or in the prevalence of mental health conditions but will be seeking further information by commissioning a survey into the prevalence of mental illness in children and young people.</p><p> </p><p><br> <br></p><p> </p> more like this

Any difference must be objectively justified.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>There may be job roles across NHS organisations with the same job title but which include different content and carry different demands. In these cases, the Job Evaluation Scheme is designed to ensure organisations deliver similar outcomes provided similar jobs are being compared.
