Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for seeking clarification.

In terms of location of deaths, I am interested in all deaths of patients with a learning disability. If you wished to break that down as inpatient and outpatient that would be helpful, but not essential. If only one category were possible within time limitations then inpatients would be most helpful.

I am interested in all patients, so adults and children. Again if you wished to break that down that would be helpful, but not essential. If only one category were possible within time limitations then adults would be most helpful.

I hope that this is clearer,
Many thanks
George
