Dr Russell Razzaque

Dear Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust,

I am currently conducting some health economics research and would be grateful if you could send me information on how many extra contractual referrals (ECRs) your Trust has made for acute working age adult psychiatric in-patient beds over the last 3 years. This excludes any referrals for specialist or long stay beds – i.e. forensic, rehab or other tertiary referrals - as I am referring only to acute admissions that had to be sent to another Trust (often out of hours) as a result of periodic bed pressures within your own area.

I would also be grateful if you could break the information down as follows;

i) Totals for each month (over the last 36 months).
ii) Gender ratios (i.e. what percentage was male and what percentage was female).
iii) Which Trusts you made these referrals to (totals for each year).

Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Russell Razzaque

Dear Dr Raazaque,

Thank you for your request for information.

Please be advised that, the Trust requires the following clarification of your request for information:

1. As the Trust only place people in the Private Sector and not Public, we do not refer to other trusts. Are you therefore able to redefine your request?

Please note that, the trust are not obligated to respond to your request until we receive your clarification.

Kind regards
