Dear Johnathan,

The Trust requires clarification of your request before we are able to proceed further. Please can we clarify what they mean by CYPMHS (i.e. do you include emotional wellbeing services, crisis team, CAMHS EDS etc.) as this is not a term we use within the trust.

Please kindly let us know if this is what you mean, or if you mean to frame your question differently.

In accordance with section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, your request is now on hold. The 20 day statutory response period will start again once clarification is received from you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Dear FOIREQUEST(LPT) (LINCOLNSHIRE PARTNERSHIP NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

CYPMHS is another term for CAMHS services. Please treat the terms as equivalent.

Yours sincerely,
