Dear Luton Primary Care Trust (PCT),

Under FOI legislation, could you please provide me with all ethnic monitoring data you have on Gypsies and Travellers health and well being, service use and staff in your PCT?

Could you also provide information detailing whether Gypsies and Travellers are monitored as standard policy in the PCT?

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Brindley

Danny King,

Dear Christine

 

Thank you for your email enquiry received by NHS Luton. Firstly, my
apologies for the delay in this getting to you.

 

Nonetheless, my colleague has answered each of your points as thus:

 

·         This ES has been provided up by 5 practices. Three are APMS
contractors.  This service has been integrated into the  AMPS contract by
default, hence they do not submit monitoring data. Only two GP practices
provide this Service as an  Enhanced service, and they both regularly
submit data. However, by time of this request, I have received information
from one practice for financial year 2011/12.

·         We have a service for the Homeless and Hard to Reach Groups. The
data we have is in relation to the Homeless and Hard to Reach Groups
 which is slightly different to what the query is about.  However the data
is as following:

 

Surgery Name: Larkside Practice

Period: 01/04/2011- 31/03/2012
