Consultation on Westminster mental health day services
Westminster City Council and its NHS partners are proposing to deliver mental health services in a new way. We have to make some changes to our services so that we can continue to provide support to those who most need it. The proposed changes will:

move away from day-centres towards tailored support focusing on recovery
help more people to receive the support they need
save money at a time of reduced funding
The proposals are based on feedback we received during a five-month review of mental health day services. We believe our proposals will help more people to receive the support they need.

We want to hear views on our proposal and work with stakeholders to shape the future of mental health services. The consultation ends on the 29 April 2016, so there is still time to submit your views online at www.westminster.gov.uk/care-views

Dear Westminster City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Westminster City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Consultation on Westminster mental health day services ending 29 April 2016'.

As part of my request I included the following:

d) a copy of any resolution or decision of the council resulting from the consultation.

I cannot see from your response where you have stated whether you have this information or not.

The ICO guidance states:

"Anyone has a right to request information from a public authority. You have two separate duties when responding to these requests:

a) to tell the applicant whether you hold any information falling within the scope of their request; and
b) to provide that information

You normally have 20 working days to respond to a request."

I am unable to determine from your response whether you hold the information requested in my para d).

Could I please ask you to deal with this part of my request?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Peter C. Bell

Dear Westminster City Council,

On 8 June 2018 I submitted a request for an internal review of your response to my FOI request.
I have yet to receive even an acknowledgement from you of receipt of this request.

If I do not hear from you by close of business on Wednesday 11 July 2018 then I propose to submit a formal complaint to the ICO.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Peter C. Bell
