Dear Ms Daly

 

Access to Information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000)

 

Further to your request dated 29 December, in which you request disclosure
of information under the provisions of the above Act; I am now in a
position to respond.

 

Request:

 

1. Since April 2014 how many adults with a learning disability applying
for residential care has Lancashire County Council submitted for tender on
the internet care portal for care providers to bid for their care
packages? Nil

 

2. How many of these people lacked capacity? Nil

 

3. How many adults with a learning disability has Lancashire County
Council successfully placed through the tendering process since April
2014? and 4. How many of those successfully placed lacked capacity?

 

We have looked up residential admissions for LD clients aged 18-64 and
matched these with records from the FACE Mental Capacity Assessment
outcomes and arrived at these numbers:

 

Count of Client  ID Outcome
Year Permanent impairment #N/A Grand Total
2014/15 3 16 19
2015/16 6 14 20
2016/17 4 7 11
Grand Total 13 37 50

 

From Apr-14 to Dec-16 we counted 50 LD clients aged 18-64 had been
admitted to residential care, of which 13 lacked capacity and 37 appeared
to have had no MCA assessment. In the Determination of Capacity section of
the MCA assessment we have looked at the question "Is there an impairment
of or disturbance in the functioning of the person’s mind or brain?" and
these 13 clients had the answer of "Permanent impairment".

 

If you have any queries regarding any of the above, or you require any
additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Miss S Patel
