Number of Eating Disorder patients under Section (Mental Health Act) 2013-2016
Alexa Ostrove made this Freedom of Information request to Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust
Dear Sheffield Health and Social Care 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.
