Delayed transfers of care (DTOC)

We're waiting for J Allen to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Airedale NHS Foundation Trust,

Could the authority state how they use agencies and/or software to expedite the discharge of DTOC patients?
How much did they spend with agencies to arrange placements with care homes or home care for DTOC patients in each of the last three financial years?
Do they use Capacity Tracker or any other software of services to identify care homes or home care packages? Please state which software or services are used.

Yours faithfully,

J Allen

Dear Mr Allen

 

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 19^th August 2019.  Your request has been
given the Reference Number ANHST REF 4413 . 

 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is   17^th September 2019.   We will try to
respond to you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage
delays or if we need more information from you.

 

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the “public interest” in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

 

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request or we can charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  In that case you would need to pay the fee before we
proceeded with your request,  but we will offer assistance and advise you
if, by modifying your request, we could provide you with some non-exempt
or free of charge information.

 

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

 

With kind regards

Dear Mr Allen

 

Further to your application to access information under the Freedom of
Information Act (ANHST REF. 4413a) please find our response below.  
Please accept my apologies for our very late reply.

 

We feel we have to reply “not recorded”.  We are aware that social care
colleagues for Bradford have looked at alternatives to reduce DTOC with
regards to package of care delays. 

 

We don’t use any systems as yet to identify vacancies at this Trust.

 

We trust you find our response helpful.  If you feel we are not complying
with our publication scheme, you feel your request has not been properly
handled, or you are dissatisfied, you can write within 40 working days to
Brendan Brown, Chief Executive at the address below to request a review. 
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner under
section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 if you are dissatisfied
with the outcome of that review.

 

Unless identified as another party's copyright, you may use and re-use the
information we have provided (not including logos or photographs), free of
charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government
Licence which can be viewed via the link below.
