The information is not collected in the format requested. However, we have introduced two waiting times for children and young people: for 95% of children (up to 19 years old) with eating disorders to receive treatment within a week for urgent cases and four weeks for routine cases, and for 56% of patients of all ages experiencing a first episode of psychosis to receive treatment within two weeks of referral. We are on target to meet these aims by 2020/21.
Quarterly data and trend indicators on these two waiting time targets is available through the Mental Health Five Year Forward View Dashboard.
A national access and waiting times standard for wider child and adolescent mental health services has not yet been defined.
