Dear Information Rights,

Thank you for your request for clarification. I wish for my questions to be applied to any operational board chaired by the director of adult social services. 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.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Harvey

Nottingham City Council
