Dear Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust,

The questions are in order of priority. Please work your way from Question 1 to 5, and simply answer as many questions as you can within the time deadline. If you are unable to answer all the questions within the time deadline, please simply provide the information you are able to gather.

For every month from 1 January 2019 to 31 May 2021, please answer the following questions:

1 In that month, how many children and young people (CYP) aged 18 and under did you refer to CAMH services after they arrived in your emergency department(s)?

2 In that months, of these CYP in question one, how many were referred to CAMH services for treatment of a suspected or confirmed eating disorder? If helpful, please search against the ICD Code F50.0, which may be included in the referral.

3 In that month, how many CYP were admitted to or treated by your acute hospital trust for the following:

3 a Treatment of an eating disorder, such as refeeding and medical stabilisation? If helpful, please search against the ICD Code F.50, which should cover all relevant eating disorder diagnoses.

3 b Treatment of self-inflicted injury? If helpful, please search against ICD Codes X60 to X69.

3 c Treatment of drug or other toxic substance overdose, whether accidental or intentional? If helpful, please search against ICD Codes X70 to X84.

Thank you for your freedom of information request received 20.06.2021.

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days after the date of receipt as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. In some circumstances we may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised timescale at the earliest opportunity.

In some cases there may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information you request. If this is the case you will be informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we receive payment from you. If you choose not to make payment then your request will remain unanswered.

Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.
Your request for information may be delayed due to urgent operational responses to dealing with Public Health priorities.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, we do remain committed to responding to your request and will respond as soon as we are able.

Please could you confirm whether you still wish to have this processed as an FOI request, in light of the already burdensome situation on the NHS?

Thank you in advance of your support.

Kind regards

Dear SWBH-GM-FOIREQUESTS (SANDWELL AND WEST BIRMINGHAM HOSPITALS NHS TRUST),

Request F21/0156

I am looking forward to receiving your response by 19 July 2021.

A few points of clarification to be used by you if helpful.

For Q 1 and 2, please keep in mind that this referral data should be held by yourselves - ie ACUTE Trusts - so please do not refuse this on the grounds that the data will be held by the Trusts you are referring to, as this is not the case!

For Q2, you may find it helpful to search using the following concept IDs or read codes, rather than ICD codes:
Concept IDs: 56882008, 231522009, 700213005, 439960005, 78004001, 1067201000000106, 427469003, 270902002, 275474009, 249520001, 231521002
OR
Read Codes: E271, X00Sz, E2751, Eu502, XE1Yk, XafjT, Eu504, XE2b9, XM1Q4, X76dF, E202z, X00Sy

For Q3, apologies, I found a mistake in the ICD10 codes I initially supplied - Q3b should be using codes X70 to X84; Q3c should be using codes X60 to X69. I hope this helps.

For Q4 and Q5, please note again this is data that will definitely be held by ACUTE Trusts, which do on occasion hold patients under the MHA, e.g. for refeeding and medical stabilisation. So, again, please do not refuse this on the grounds that the data will be held by the Trusts you are referring to, as this is not the case!

Further, please can you supply all data in an excel spreadsheet?

Yours sincerely,

Janet Eastham
