Redbridge Concern for Mental Health

Dear Redbridge Borough Council,

Please can we have a copy of the S75 agreement between the London Borough of Redbridge (LBR) and the North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT) for the provision of mental health services (November 2012)

Yours faithfully,

Redbridge Concern for Mental Health

FoI (Freedom of Information), Redbridge Borough Council

Dear  Sir/Madam,

 

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.  Unfortunately, you have not provided your full
name, and until we receive this, we will be unable to process your
request.

 

Albeit that the Act only states that “the” name of the applicant is
required rather than ‘the full’ name of the applicant, the Commissioner
considers it not unreasonable to ask for a full name to be provided. This
is also appropriate given that it could lead to unnecessary confusion /
delay / possible data protection breaches if applicants cannot be
distinguished from one another.

 

Upon receipt of the detail we have requested, your request will be
processed, and you will receive the information requested within the
statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Freedom of
Information Act 2000, subject to the information not being exempt or
containing a reference to a third party.

If appropriate, the information may be provided in paper copy, normal font
size. If you require alternative formats, e.g. language, audio, large
print, etc. then please let me know.

For your information, the Act defines a number of exemptions that may
prevent release of the information you have requested. There will be an
assessment and if any of the exemption categories apply then the
information will not be released. You will be informed if this is the
case, including your rights of appeal.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken on whether or not to
release the information to you. You will be informed if this is the case.

There may a fee payable for this information. This will be considered and
you will be informed if a fee is payable. In this event the fee must be
paid before the information is processed and released. The 20 working day
time limit for responses is suspended until receipt of the payment.

If you have any queries or concerns then please contact the Information
Officer at London Borough of Redbridge, Town Hall, PO Box 2, High Road,
Ilford, Essex, telephone 0208 708 2331, e-mail [1][Redbridge Borough Council request email]

Dear Mr Abrams

I acknowledge your above-mentioned request for information which was
received on 13 August 2013.

The London Borough of Redbridge is in the process of pro-actively
publishing the datasets of information that it holds on its website,
Redbridge i.  Some of the information will be exempt under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 or Data Protection Act 1998, and this will be removed
or redacted.  You may wish to look at the website to see if the
information you are requesting is already available – you can search the
datasets using a user friendly tool the London Borough of Redbridge has
developed called Datashare and, for your convenience, this is a link to
that tool: [1]http://data.redbridge.gov.uk/

Your request is being considered and you will receive the information
requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working days (from the day
the request was received) as defined by the Freedom of Information Act
2000, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a
reference to a third party. 

The Act defines a number of exemptions that may prevent release of the
information you have requested. There will be an assessment and if any of
the exemption categories apply then the information will not be released.
You will be informed if this is the case, including your rights of
appeal.  

 

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken on whether or not to
release the information to you. You will be informed if this is the case.

 

Please note that the legislation allows access to information 'held' by
the Council and not for the creation of new information or opinion. 
Therefore, we may only be able to supply documents or data that contain
the information we hold in response to your request.

 

If appropriate, the information may be provided in paper copy, normal font
size. If you require alternative formats, e.g. language, audio, large
print, etc. then please let me know.

There may a fee payable for this information. This will be considered and
you will be informed if a fee is payable. In this event the fee must be
paid before the information is processed and released. The 20 working day
time limit for responses is suspended until receipt of the payment.
