such under Section 12 of the Act, we are not obliged to provide the
information to you. We can however comply with our duty to confirm or deny
whether we hold the information, by confirming we do hold data from which
the requested information may be collated.

Dear FREEDOM Information (RF4) BHR Hospitals,

If the request is amended to and restricted to the year 2013/14 will this be within the compliance limit?

Yours sincerely,

Jon Abrams

Redbridge Concern for Mental Health

FREEDOM Information (RF4) BHR Hospitals,

Dear Mr Abrams

 

Regarding your amended request below, we have gone back to the
Pre-Discharge Team to ask if we are able to supply data restricted to
2013/14 and this is their response:

 

Once the HNAs DSTs with all information has gone to the respective Social
Services and patients placed into homes with dementia we do not keep a
trail of who went where and what diagnosis.

 

All relevant Social Services would have to keep a record of who they place
in homes and why.

 

As for BHRUT our records are maintained in the actual patients' records so
a huge audit of every patient placed into a residential or nursing home
would need to be pulled to get this information.

 

In view of the information above we can confirm that we are unable to
respond to your request, even with a smaller time frame, within the
compliance limit as per our original response dated 16th July 2014.

 

If we can be of assistance in the future please do not hesitate to get in
touch.

 

Kind Regards

 

Freedom of Information Team
