2) Please outline the categories of staff - such as doctors/ nurses/ social workers/psychologists - on whom the funding has been spent and state how much has been spent on each category.

We aim to provide you with the information requested within the 20 working days. In certain exceptional circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, I will let you know the likely charges before proceeding. You will receive a notification if an exemption applies to the disclosure of this information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

Dear Paul Atkinson,

 

In order for the trust to identify and locate the information requested we
reasonably require clarification from you on the scope of your request.
Freedom of Information Act 2000, Section 16 stipulates a duty for a public
authority to provide advice and assistance when they receive an unclear or
ambiguous request. Please provide clarification to the following point(s)

 

Please can you clarify what is meant by “integrated primary mental health
teams”. For example, are you referring to IAPT services, which is primary
care and may fit this description? We also have our Psychiatric Liaison
teams which operate out of A&E and therefore could be classified as
‘integrated primary mental health’?

 

For assistance, you can use the below service finder to help specify the
teams you refer to

Until we receive this information from you, in line with current
legislation your request will be placed on hold. If we do not hear back
from you by 11 October 2022, this request will be closed.  If you require
any assistance, or would like to discuss your request further, please do
not hesitate to contact us at: [South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust request email]

 

Kind Regards,

Dear Blake, Antani,

“Integrated primary mental health teams” are community-based treatment and care for adults aged 18+ with a wide range of mental health difficulties and are linked to primary care networks and work closely with GPs, social services, voluntary sector partners and other organisations

Something very similar to the service below ( please see the link) which is in its pilot phase
