Freedom of Information Act Request: Ref FOI 37-22/23: Response
I am writing further to your request made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 received on 15 August
2022. NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care Board’s (ICB) response is set out below:
Please could you tell me whether you implement a ‘same-sex’ personal care policy for your social
care service users? Or if you have moved to a ‘gender based’ policy?
Not applicable. The ICB does not have any social care service users
Does this policy apply to social care users who receive CHC funding provided by you, as well as
those who receive council funded social care?
Social care users by definition do not receive CHC funding. CHC funded clients do not have their care
provided by the ICB and so we do not have a policy on this; care is commissioned through private providers.
The ICB we cannot answer on behalf of the local authority regarding council funded care.
Please provide proof of your policy.
Not applicable. Please refer to the response at Q2
Do you instruct all care agencies in the area to comply with your policy or are each able to
implement their own policy?
If you are dissatisfied with how your request has been handled or would like to formally appeal against our
