Waiting times for mental health treatment

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group,

I am writing to request data under the Freedom of Information (2000) regarding the length of time between referral and starting treatment for psychological therapies, for patients referred in July 2018. I include in this all talking therapies offered within your service, and all methods of referral.

If this data is unavailable, I would like to know the current median average time a patient will spend on a waiting list before recieving psychological therapy.

Please contact me with any queries or clarifications regarding this request. I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Emma Yeomans
