Dear NHS Barnsley 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 found not eligible for Continuing Healthcare Funding?

5/. Of those which have reached the stage of a Decision Letter, how many applications have been found not eligible for Continuing Healthcare Funding for reasons relating to original documents or records having been lost or destroyed?

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Wain
