Dear North Middlesex University Hospital NHS 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
