ECR Referrals

Dr Russell Razzaque made this Freedom of Information request to Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dr Russell Razzaque

Dear Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust,

I am currently conducting some health economics research and would be grateful if you could send me information on how many extra contractual referrals (ECRs) your Trust has made for acute working age adult psychiatric in-patient beds over the last 3 years. This excludes any referrals for specialist or long stay beds – i.e. forensic, rehab or other tertiary referrals - as I am referring only to acute admissions that had to be sent to another Trust (often out of hours) as a result of periodic bed pressures within your own area.

I would also be grateful if you could break the information down as follows;

i) Totals for each month (over the last 36 months).
ii) Gender ratios (i.e. what percentage was male and what percentage was female).
iii) Which Trusts you made these referrals to (totals for each year).

Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Russell Razzaque
