Dear Mr Read

 

Further to your request for information, I can advise as below;

 

1) Provisional end of year figure for 2018-19 (1^st April 2018 to 31^st
March 2019) shows that there were 91 reviews not completed for those cases
that had ongoing costed social care services, e.g. Residential care,
Nursing care, home care, day care, direct payments etc.
This is the context of 4,071 reviews completed across the year by Adult
Social Care in Hartlepool, and 1,501 reviews completed on those cases that
had ongoing costed social care services.
It should be noted that the above analysis will include some reviews that
were not completed due to the client being deceased, going into hospital
or moving to fully funded health care etc.

 

2) No

 

3) N/A

 

4) N/A (assuming this is related to questions 2 & 3)

 

5) N/A (assuming this is related to questions 2 & 3)
