Enquiry re previously un-assessed eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare funding

We're waiting for Andrew Wain to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear NHS Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group,

Sir David Nicholson, then Chief Executive of the NHS in England,
requested in a letter on 15/03/2012 that individuals or their
representatives notify the relevant PCT in respect of previously
un-assessed periods of time where there is evidence that the individual
should have been assessed for eligibility for NHS CHC funding with respect
to that care.
1/. Please let me know how many applications were received by the CCG, and/or the CCGs/PCTs it replaced, before the first deadline Sir David gave in that letter, ie 30/12/2012?
2/. Of those applications received, how many reached the stage of being
processed by the CCG, and/or the CCGs/PCTs it replaced?
3/. Of those which reached the stage of being processed by the CCG, and/or the CCGs/PCTs it replaced, how many have so far resulted in a Decision Letter?
4/. Of those which have reached the stage of a Decision Letter, how many
applications have been refused?
5/. Of those which have reached the stage of a Decision Letter, how many
applications have been refused for reasons relating to original documents
or records having been lost or destroyed?

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Wain

Dear NHS Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of NHS Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group's handling of my FOI request 'Enquiry re previously un-assessed eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare funding'.

I originally made the same request to NHS England. |Their response was that they were unable to help but I could make the same request to local CCGs directly.
I have done so. The local CCGs which have responded so far have without exception provided the information requested. This includes CCGs which exist as amalgamations of former CCGs as well as those which took over directly from PCTs. There were no CCGs anywhere before 2013 so NHS Birmingham CrossCity CCG is not unique in it's history. NHS Birmingham CrossCity CCG should be able to provide information relating to the bodies whose responsibilities it acquired at its creation.
A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/e...

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Wain
