CAHMS treatment

Matthew Thompson made this Freedom of Information request to Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust as part of a batch sent to 56 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

To whom it may concern,

I would like to make the following request under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

1) Could you please tell me the number of people referred to CAMHS services at your trust in both 2019 and so far this year, broken down by month?

2) Could you further tell me the number of people actually starting treatment at CAMHS services at your trust in 2019, and so far this year, broken down by month?

3) Could you tell me how many of the people who started treatment in 2019 did it online? And similarly, how many of the people who started in 2020 did so online?

4) Finally, could you tell me how many people are currently on a waiting list for CAMHS treatment, and how that compares to the same point last year?

If you feel that this request is likely to breach any cost limits, please disregard point 1) above.

If it is still likely to breach limits, disregard point 3)

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Thompson
