Number of referrals to IMCA (Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy)

The request was successful.

Dear Cheshire East Council,

I hope you might be able to help me with the request for information below. If you have the information to hand for tax year 2016/2017 as well as 2017/2018 I would appreciate both data sets if it is possible, otherwise just 2016/2017 is fine.

Please could you provide the name of the organisation commissioned to deliver Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA)?

If you hold data on the number of referrals made in the year 2016/2017 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 decisions
iv. Safeguarding

b) If you hold data on the number of referrals made in 2016/2017, 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.

If you hold data on the number of challenges to decisions (formal complaints and s21A applications to Court of Protection) under the MCA made by IMCAs please could you provide these numbers for 2016/2017 as well?

Thank you for your help,

Yours faithfully

Yours faithfully,
