Dear Dickson, Laura,

Thank you for your response with data.

On reviewing the spreadsheet I noticed that Health & Social Care (HSC) data seem to be missing. Especially Fostering related expenses. Could you please check and revert?

If it would help, we are looking for itemized transactions for all suppliers who provide a service in Health and Social Care, from 1st January 2019 - 30th June 2019, preferably in a CSV format. This would include all suppliers falling under the following categories :-

1. Payments to suppliers who provide fostering and adoption services to the Council
2. Payments to suppliers who provide care services to the council. This would include suppliers who provide care under each of the categories below :-
a. Children's Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
b. Adult Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
c. Elderly Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
d. Domiciliary Care Home Providers
e. Supported Living Care Home Providers
f. Care at Home Providers
g. Providers who carry out Homeless Services
3. Payments to suppliers who provide Special Education Services

I sincerely hope the Council may accommodate my request.

Thank you very much & kind Regards,
Yours faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

There is not a single category specifying "fostering" in your spreadsheet.

Dear Mr Prabhu,

I am in receipt of your email dated 28 October. Please accept my apologies as this was the first time I had seen your response. After further investigation it seems your emails have been entering my Junk mail box. I have raised this issue with my IT department and have now fixed the issue to ensure this does not happen again.

I have now forwarded your emails to the relevant department who will be in contact as soon as possible.
