Number of Eating Disorder patients under Section (Mental Health Act) 2013-2016

The request was successful.

Dear East London NHS Foundation Trust,

I trust you find my request well.

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the following information regarding your eating disorder inpatient services.

1. The number of eating disorder patients in inpatient treatment under a section order (Mental Health Act) in the years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016

2. The number of VOLUNTARY eating disorder patients in inpatient treatment in the years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

3. The number of discharged eating disorder inpatients under a section order (Mental Health Act) in the years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016

4. The number of voluntary discharged eating disorder inpatients NOT under a section order in the years 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.

I'd appreciate if this data could relate to the patient numbers as they stand at the end of each year (i.e number of patients in treatment in December 2013, 2014, e.t.c.).

I also request for the data to be separated year by year - i.e separate numbers displayed for each year.

Thanks very much for your help with my request.

Yours faithfully,
Alexa Ostrove

Dear Alexa Ostrove

 

Could you please clarify the following:-

 

3. The number of discharged eating disorder inpatients under a section
order (Mental Health Act) in the years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016

This does not make sense – inpatients under a section cannot be discharged

 

 

I'd appreciate if this data could relate to the patient numbers as they
stand at the end of each year (i.e. number of patients in treatment in
December 2013, 2014, etc.).

This is confusing. Is data being requested for the month of December in
each year only or for the full calendar month in each year?

 

 

 

Kind regards

Dear FOIRequest,

Hello

With regards to sectioning, I am referring to those who subsequently had their section lifted and were therefore discharged.

With regards to your second query, data is requested for the FULL year - not month. i.e from 1st January 2015 - 31st December 2015.

Thanks

Yours sincerely,

Eve
