Personal Budgets / Social Services - Borough statistics request

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, South Oxfordshire District Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Andrew Greenhalgh

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am contacting you on behalf of a private health care organisation currently formulating an online service targeting individuals and carers of individuals who receive Personal Budgets for care products and services. The aim is to provide a valuable service to public authorities and service users alike, which will fall in line with the Government’s ‘Our Health, Our Care, Our Say’ white paper.

For this purpose I need to know the following and would be grateful if you could reply with that info or details of who I should contact if you are not the right department.

1. How many individuals in total receive a Personal Budget within the boroughs under your remit?
2. What percentage of these individuals are on the Personalisation programme? And is your target 33%?
3. How many social workers are there working in adult care within the boroughs covered under your remit?
4. How many allocated cases are there in adult care?
5. How many of these are working with disabled people under 60?
6. How many unallocated cases are there in adult care?
7. How many adults are you providing some sort of community care service to in total?
8. How many ‘held’ cases are there in adult care.
9. What is the average time between referral for a service and assessment of needs?
10. What is the average time between referral and provision of the necessary service?
11. What is your total adult care budget for 2009-2010?
12. What proportion of this is spent providing care in the community through Direct Payments or Individual Budgets?
13. What proportion of this is spent on residential care provision?
14. What is the average length of time for provision of aids?
15. What is the average personal budget per borough?

Yours faithfully,
Andrew Greenhalgh
