Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear NHS Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group,

I would be very grateful for an answer to the following:

1a) Has Anyone been eligible for NHS CHC who had an assessed level of need across the 12 domains that was equal or less than the following:

2x high level of need +
5x moderate level of need +
3x low level of need +
2x no level of need

2) what has been the lowest assessed level of need that has determined someone to be eligible for NHS CHC? (For example 1x high, 6 moderate, 3x low and 2x no needs).

This can be over a limited period of time depending on the budget available to access this information. Preferably within the past year. Please provide dates, many thanks.

3) Please provide examples of health care needs which would be considered in the 12th domain?

4) In the mobility domain, a severe level of need is described as ‘completely immobile’. The framework gives no further explanation or clear definition. Please describe the physical needs an individual has which supports your assessors decision that the individual is completely immobile.

5a) Do you have quick and easy access to a database or electronic system which records an individuals level of need across all domains and the overall outcome eligibility decision for each individual?

5b) The framework was designed to ensure a consistent approach to decision making. If two individuals score the same level of need across all domains but have different decisions on eligibility, audits using a database would highlight this. Without a database please describe the process in place to highlight discrepancies between cases and ensure consistent decision making?

Yours faithfully,

Laura cawley

Dear Laura

Thank you for your email. I have now logged your request with the following reference number: 128 / 20.

Your request for information is now being processed in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. It is hoped that a response will be provided to you by no later than 28 September 2020. However, please note that MCCG is currently handling a large volume of business critical work during the COVID-19 outbreak. Accordingly, requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 during the COVID-19 outbreak may have a longer response period than that stated. The response that you receive may also not be complete in whole or in part. This is because:

• Responding to your request may require business area resource which is currently directed towards the COVID-19 outbreak. Directing resources towards responding to your request could result in vital care of service not being delivered, and may expose individuals to COVID-19;
• Under government guidance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all MHCC staff who are able to are working from home until further notice. As such they may not be able to get hold of certain information which cannot be accessed remotely, and accessing it would potentially expose the individual to COVID-19

Dear REGAN, Catherine (MANCHESTER HEALTH AND CARE COMMISSIONING),

Regarding question 1.
Please could you state if the level of needs scored for each domain in the example given would:
A) Definitely rule someone out of eligibility
B) Potentially be considered eligible but more information would be needed

Because needs are identified across 10 out of 12 domains and the majority being high and moderate in the CCG opinion could this be considered potentially complex needs, ie there are interwoven needs across the domains?

(Please any responses may be used to support a campaign of injustice for CHC both within and between CCG’s)

Yours sincerely,

Laura cawley
