Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Hello,

I hope you're well.

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please can you provide separate information for each of your hospitals/facilities providing mental health inpatient services:

- Is the hospital smokefree (i.e. does not allow smoking anywhere on hospital grounds) and, if yes, what date did this happen?
- How many patients/service users have absconded/gone AWOL while on leave for each calendar year since 2000? By "leave" I mean a period of time outside the hospital grounds approved by a member of staff. For example, it might be several hours or 15 minutes for some fresh air, escorted by two nurses. I'd be looking for information on those who fail to return when expected, while on such leave.
- Of these, how many patients/service users have absconded/gone AWOL while on leave to have a cigarette or where the report mentions cigarettes for each calendar year since 2000?
- When looking at all incident reports (not just those in which a patient absconded), how many incident reports mentioned "smoking", "smoke", "cigarette" or "lighter" a) in 2017, b) in 2018 and c) in 2019?

If this request will come in above the cost limit, please advise how I might refine it.

Yours faithfully,

Claire Wilde

Dear Ms Wilde

and mental health inpatient services

 

I refer to your attached request in respect of the above. I have passed it
onto the relevant Service Manager who has advised that information dating
back to 2000 will take a long time to collate. They are not yet sure what
information is available and have asked would you agree to reducing the
timeframe to perhaps the last five years?

 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me quoting the
reference number above.

 

Kind regards

Hello, thank you for your email.

Would I be able to request information for the last 10 years? Or would that take me over the cost threshold?

Many thanks in advance for your help,

Many thanks for this helpful response.

For questions 2 and 3, I had requested figures by calendar year but it seems the figures supplied are by financial year. Is it possible to get the figures by calendar year, as requested?

Many thanks in advance,
