Dear A. Behrooz,

 

FOI Request ref:  7396 / Nursing Homes Safeguarding concerns,
investigations and substantiated cases of abuse/neglect

 

Thank you for your request for information about the above. Your request
was received on 30/6/2016 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. We always aim to respond as quickly as
possible, but we are unable to provide care home names because this would
potentialy identify individuals and therefore be a breach of the Data
Protection Act Principles. In these circumstances the information is
exempt from disclosure under Section 40(2) Freedom of Information Act. We
can provide statistical information regarding the number of Safeguarding
concerns/Investigations/Substantiated. Would you like us to proceed on
this basis? 

Your request is on hold pending receipt of your clarification. Please
quote the above reference number in any communication regarding this
request.

 

Yours sincerely
