Dear freedom of information manager,
I am writing to see if you might be able to help me with the following request for information.
Could you provide the name of the organisation commissioned to deliver Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA) in the period April 2018 to March 2019?
If you hold data on the number of IMCA referrals made to you in the year 2018/19. (preferably from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019, or any other 12 month period within 2018/19 you could specify) please could you provide information on how many times an IMCA was instructed in each decision:
i. Long term Change of Accommodation
ii. Serious Medical Treatment
iii. Review of the Accommodation
b) If you hold data on the number of times an advocate was instructed from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 (or any other 12 month period within 2018/19 you could specify) please could you provide information on how many times an IMCA DoLS was instructed within each of these:
i. 39A DoLS process
ii. 39C DoLS process
iii. 39D DoLS process
I would also be very grateful if you could tell me how many times a paid RPR was instructed in the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 or any other 12 month period within 2018/19 you could specify.
If you do not hold the data for the above could you kindly tell me who does?
If you are not recording this data at present could you please tell me if you plan to start to record this data in the next 12 months?
The 'What Do They Know' suggestions for good practice recommended that organisations make this kind of information publicly available on their own website, would you consider doing this in the future?
Thank you so much for your help with this request,
