Dear Joint Commissioning FOI,

Thank you for your response.

I have had a look at these numbers and it looks as though they are a little low.

Can you confirm this covers all roles paid for by the Adults and Chidlren's Services budget which aren't qualified social worker vacancies? Including all roles direct and via an e-procurement system?

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Rachael Greenall
