Hi

 

I am looking into this FOI and require some clarification. The question in
matter is question 8.

 

8.            Please provide the number of patients receiving social care
support for 2016/17 and 2017/18 split by the following types of care:

a.            Physical support

b.            Sensory support

c.             Support with memory and cognition

d.            Learning disability support

e.            Mental health support

f.             total

 

Is this asking for the number of service users with the listed Primary
Support Reason, or just their Support Reason. For example, somebody with a
primary support reason of Mental health support could also have received
some sort of social care for physical support, meaning they would be
counted twice. Would you like this to be considered or would you just like
the primary support reason counted.

 

Many Thanks

 

Mathew Sage
