Dear Ms Atthews

 

I have been asked to carry out a review of a request you made in March
2017

 

“Please can you provide me with an organisational chart for Social Work to
include the following

 

Names and Job titles of management

Location of teams within the authority

Number of Locums per team

Current locum spent

 

I would also be grateful if you could include a list of any current locum
vacancies for social workers/care coordinators and also details of any MSP
framework agreement you are currently signed up to”

 

It is unclear to me at present why you did not receive a response but note
from your email of 7 September 2017 that you want a review and a response
to the request.

 

A review usually relates to information existing at the date of the
initial request.

 

The nature of your request eg current locum vacancies suggests that you
were seeking current information. If I asked for the information held in
March 2017 would this be of any use to you or are you seeking information
as at September 2017?

 

Please let me know.

Dear Chris Warner,

Thanks for the response. Info as of Sept 17 would be good.

Also just to clarify I would like the names of the managers of both Children and Adults Social Work teams.

Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Catriona Atthews
