Re: Freedom of Information Request ref: 8002

We have considered your request under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act and must advise that in respect of your specific questions, we do not hold information with which to answer your questions. This is because we do not have a Adult Social Care (Social Services) Board structure within Cambridgeshire County Council; our Adult Social Care structures are published on our website and you may wish to use these to format a new request.

This information may be obtained via the following link: https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/reside...

I hope this information is helpful but if you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review, you should write to Information Management, at either [Cambridgeshire County Council request email] or by post at Box No. OCT1224, Shire Hall, Cambridge CB3 0AP within 40 days of the date of this e-mail.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, or via their website: https://ico.org.uk/.

Generally, the ICO will not undertake a review or make a decision on a request until the internal review process has been completed.

Dear Price David,

Thank you for your response and guidance in relation to my request. I can clarify that in the absence of a formal Adult Social Care Board I mean for the questions to be applied to the senior management team that delivers adult social care functions and report to the Director of Social Service (DASS) or whoever fulfills this statutory role (if defined by a different name in your authority).

Further in the absence of a formal Adults Social Care Board can you advise whether the PSW forms part if the senior management team as defined above.

I would be grateful if you could accept this clarification as part of my original FOI request. If not then please accept this as a new FOI request but using the original questions in relation to the senior management team for Adult Social Care

Yours sincerely,

Mark Harvey

Price David, Cambridgeshire County Council
