Publication type:

This sample specification supports the commissioning of Child and Adolescent Mental Health targeted and specialist services (Tiers 2 and 3). It can be adapted to cover just targeted (Tier 2) or just specialist (Tier3) services. This sample service specification is non-mandatory.


This Word version of the model specification is available for commissioners to use when developing their own specification for their local area – commissioners may amend and insert detail where appropriate. Once changes have been made, that specification should be attributed to the specific commissioner/local area, not NHS England overall.
