Dear Euan McCutcheon

 

 

Thank you for your email of 04 August 2018 requesting information about
Adult Social Work needs assessments.

 

From our preliminary assessment, it is clear that we will not be able to
answer your request fully without further clarification. 

 

In order to respond please clarify the timeframe you wish us to report,
either financial year or calendar year.  Also, please can you clarify your
definition of ‘wait’, do you wish to receive information on the time from
an initial referral to the time it takes to have an assessment, or do you
wish to receive data on the start and end date of the assessment process. 

 

Once you have clarified this information, I will be able to continue
processing your request. Under section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information
Act (FOIA), a public authority need not comply with a request unless any
further information reasonably required to locate the information is
supplied. If you do not provide the requested clarification, we will be
unable to respond to your request. 

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.
