Dear Greenwich Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Greenwich Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'How does Greenwich compare in terms of spending on Adult social care.'.

By law you were supposed to give me a response by 16th January.

After I requested an internal review you said “ We are endeavouring to provide the requested information by Wednesday 22^nd January 2020 at the latest.”

The second deadline has now passed given that it is now many hours since the council offices closed.

Please provide a solid deadline when you will get the information to me as other FOI requests that were submitted after mine have been responded to.

It is my understanding that the information that I am requesting was providing in a Budget Recovery Board meeting.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/h...

Yours faithfully,

Jenny Hurst

Freedom of Information request:  FOI-35220

 

Thank you for your request dated 16 December 2019

 

Our response is as follows:

 

In spring 2019, Royal borough of Greenwich launched a consultation to
increase care charges to Adult social care in order to alleviate the
current published overspend. This affects disabled residents who use care
services, like myself.

If the budget for Adult social care returned to balance (no under or
overspend):

1. How much would RBG be spending per head of adult population in
Greenwich

The most recent data from the Office of National Statistics (2018)
estimates the adult (over 18) population in the Royal Borough of Greenwich
at 217,269. Based on this, the average spend per head would be £356. This
represents spend from the Adult Social Care budget only, not any other RBG
spend.

 

2. How much would RBG be spending per head of the disabled population in
Greenwich

The Royal Borough of Greenwich does not hold data on the disabled
population. We would only know of people with a disability that have made
contact with social services.

 

 

3. Where would Greenwich come in rankings, as an Adult social care
funder, in terms of spending per head of adult population:

a. In London 7th out of 33, with 1 being the highest

b. Nationally 48th out of 152, with 1 being the highest

 

If you have any queries about this correspondence, please contact me,
quoting the reference number above.

 

If you are not satisfied with our response to your request, you can ask
for an Internal Review.  Internal review requests must be submitted within
two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original
request.  If you wish to do this, please contact us in writing, setting
out why you are dissatisfied.

 

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the Internal Review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a decision. 
Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the
Internal Review procedure provided by the Council. You can contact the ICO
by emailing [1][email address], or by post at Customer Contact,

Dear Greenwich Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Greenwich Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'How does Greenwich compare in terms of spending on Adult social care.'.

Thank you for your response, however you have not answered the question that specifically asks about the situation relating to the plans to reduce the ASC spending to a NET ZERO BUDGET (I.e no under or overspend).

Also, answer you provided do not tally with nationally published data.

The Feb 19 LGA report, which use the office of National statistics data form the year you refer to 2017/18 in fact places Greenwich 115 out of 152 for spend on Adult Social Care.

These same figures actually put Greenwich council spend at a higher figure than you do of £373 (per person) but note that the national average is £410 and the London average £386.

These ranking does not take account of the fact that Greenwich had been looking to make savings on current spend of around £11m, which is the adjustment that we had asked you to apply.

1. Please therefore provide copies of the Minutes, supporting document and comments/ decision position document from the Budget Recovery Board.

2. Can you please provide your workings and the data tables you used to arrive at the answers you have given?

3. Additionally, you mentioned that your response only relates to “Adult Social Care” money - please clarify whether this includes Better Care / improved Better Care fund money or not.

4. Finally, as additional proposals have been made in the last few days to “reshape” social care - to the tune of £8m savings for adults alone - please clarify what the new spending per head is proposed to be.
