Dear NHS Thurrock 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
