Dr Russell Razzaque

Dear Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust,

I am currently conducting some health economics research and would be grateful if you could send me information on how many extra contractual referrals (ECRs) your Trust has made for acute working age adult psychiatric in-patient beds over the last 3 years. This excludes any referrals for specialist or long stay beds – i.e. forensic, rehab or other tertiary referrals - as I am referring only to acute admissions that had to be sent to another Trust (often out of hours) as a result of periodic bed pressures within your own area.

I would also be grateful if you could break the information down as follows;

i) Totals for each month (over the last 36 months).
ii) Gender ratios (i.e. what percentage was male and what percentage was female).
iii) Which Trusts you made these referrals to (totals for each year).

Many thanks in advance.

Yours Faithfully,

Dr Russell Razzaque

Dear Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust,

I sent you this FOI request last month and have not yet received an acknowledgement or a response. I would therefore be grateful to hear from you in some form in the near future.

Yours faithfully,
