Request for care plan information

Gina Pyke made this Freedom of Information request to Merton Borough Council

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Merton Borough Council,

I am requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
• How do you currently handle care planning in your care homes - electronically or on paper?
• If you you’re using electronic care planning, who is the current supplier, what is the value of the contract and when will the contact expire?
• If you use paper for care planning, do you have any plans for public tender within the next 12 months?
• What are the contact details of the procurement officer?

By care planning I mean the plans of care provision in case you provide social care support in residential care, supported living, domiciliary care, or similar social care settings. This would encompass risk assessments and support plans such as nutritional care plans, mobility care plans, amongst others. This might not be relevant if you don't offer social care services as a local authority.

Yours faithfully,

Gina Pyke

foi, Merton Borough Council
