Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

The number of locum/temporary/agency Substance Misuse Practitioners/Substance Misuse Workers/Recovery Workers/Drug & Alcohol Workers for each calendar month of 2012 i.e.
