Dear NHS Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:

Medication prompts are defined as:
The definition of 'prompting' is: 'the action of saying something to persuade, encourage or remind someone to do or say something'. Prompting of medication is reminding a person of the time and asking if they have or are going to take their medicines. (Google.com)

1. Do you fund Medication Prompts?
2. If yes, under which funding budget line/service is it allocated? (i.e Pharmacy, IPP, CHC, DTOC etc)
3. Do you joint fund Medication Prompts with your local Adult Social Service Department?
4. How many clients do you currently fund?
5. What is your predicted annual spend for Medication Prompts?
6. How long / Since when have you funded Medication Prompting Service?

Please provide the information in electronic format at this email address. However, I am happy to receive them by post if that is more convenient.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.
