4. For each of the last 3 years, what was the average waiting time for patients in your CCG from referral to first point of treatment in a Tier 3 CAMHS service?

If differentiation between Tier 2 and Tier 3 services proves difficult, please feel free to collate the numbers into a single statistic.

Applicable to Tier 3:

Following an upgrade to the RiO clinical system in November 2015, there was intermittent problems accessing the system which hampered real time data capture and created problems with extracting data for reporting purposes across the organisation, particularly during January 2016. Therefore the CCG do not hold validated data for this period.
