Paul Taylforth made this Freedom of Information request to Highland NHS Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Highland NHS Board,

Please would it be possible for you to be able to provide the
following information of None Residential Care Packages.

Please could you provide for each of the last 5 years the number of
all Care Packages worth over £750 per week.

If it is possible to do so please break these down to show how many
are for people between 18-65 and how many for people over 65.

If it is possible to do so please break these down to show which
Care Packages were newly commissioned in each year.

If it is possible to do so please indicate whether the value of
these care packages includes any contribution from the Independent
Living Fund (ILF) and how much this contribution is worth.

If you only know the LA or Total contribution of the care package,
but it is possible that there is an additional ILF contribution
which the LA does not record please could you state this in your
response.

If the ILF is abolished in 2015 and the funds develoved to LA's but
not ring fenced, would you anticipate being able to continue to
fund current ILF users care packages to the level they currently
are or not.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Taylforth
