Dear P T Read 541501 ,

 

Further to your Freedom of Information Request which was received on
31/12/2018 22:00, I am emailing to request some clarification in relation
to your queries.

 

Within your request, you asked:

 

  How many adult reviews/reassessments have not been undertaken within a
12 month period as of the 11/12/2018 and fall outside of Care Act
Compliance?

 

Please could you clarify what you mean by "Care Act Compliance" are you
asking for the numbers of people who have not had a re-assessment in the
last 12 months?

 

The number of reviews/reassessments that were conducted

 

Are you requesting the number of all reviews / re- assessments undertaken
(i.e. by the council and by third party) or is it just those undertaken by
a third party, as per the scope questions 2, 3 and 5?

 

We would appreciate it if you could provide this clarification to us at
[1][email address]

 

Please be aware that if we do not hear from you within three months, we
will need to assume that you are no longer interested in receiving the
information for the queried questions, and will close your request on our
system.

 

Regards
