Dear Grant Scott,

Thanks for your email. We are reviewing your response below with your previous clarification sent (attached).

The attached clarification question was "Please outline your spend per agency, broken down by grade and speciality of nurse and department for the above time period.", for which you replied : " Please can you confirm the on framework and off-framework spend for nursing. Band 5, band 6 and band 7."

However the below suggest you are looking for all agency professions. Can you kindly review the two and advise which it ; are you requesting information for just Nursing agency or all mental health agency?

Thank you.
