Freedom Of Information Requests (LCFT), Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust

Hi Kelly
Please find the response to your FOI request:

The Professional Lead for OT is Cathy Ormston, though occupational therapists are managed operationally within 4 network organisational management structures.

In relation to Physiotherapist and Speech and Language Therapists (SALT) we do not have any professional structures currently which identify specific leads . These professions are managed within their respective functional teams, the vast majority of which fall within the stroke and rehab service and are managed by Anthony McKay.

As these services only recently transferred under TCS (June 2011) from the PCTs there is currently a consultation on a professional and leadership structure and it is proposed to have a Trust AHP lead, and then appoint professional leads for both SALT and Physiotherapy. The plan is these posts will be appointed to in the new structure by the end of this financial year.

I hope this answers your FOI. If you are unhappy with the way the Trust has handled your request, you may ask for an internal review by contacting the FOI Lead at [email address]

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision.

The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
Information Commissioner’s Office
