Mental Health Agency Staff

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear East Sussex County Council,

I would like to request that you provide the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:

Please can you confirm what your total spend on temporary Mental Health staff was during the financial year 2014-15 for the below specialisms?
Can you please break this financial information down by:
• Mental Health Nurse
• Learning Disabilities Nurse
• Psychologists
• Psychological wellbeing practitioner
• Psychotherapist
• Counsellor
• High Intensity Therapist

To provide additional clarity on my request, ‘temporary Mental Health staff’ is to mean all persons who are mental health staff and are not on permanent contracts of employment with the Council, but are supplied via employment agencies.

Yours faithfully,

Bob Henderson

I hope that this answers your enquiry. If you believe that the County
Council has not complied with the FOI Act in responding to your request,
you may ask for an internal review. If you wish to do so, please set out
the grounds of your appeal in writing to:

 

Philip Baker, Assistant Chief Executive, East Sussex County Council,
County Hall, St Anne’s Crescent, Lewes, East Sussex. BN7 1UE.

or by email to him at [1][email address]

 

Please quote the FOI reference number in any communication regarding this
particular request.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you then
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision
unless you have exhausted the County Council’s internal review procedure
as described in the previous paragraph. The Commissioner can be contacted
at: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Tel: 0303 123 1113.  [2]www.ico.org.uk
