CAMHS referrals (1516187)

1. I enclose as an attachment to this email a Microsoft Excel template file. I would be grateful if you could insert the name of your Trust below the column marked ‘Q1’.

Please see the attached spreadsheet.

3. What was the single longest number of days waiting time between referral to CAMHS and first appointment in each of the last three calendar years and for each tier of CAMHS care?

Please see the attached spreadsheet and explanatory notes in respect of Tier 1 and Tier 4 services.

In respect of Tier 2 and Tier 3 services, information is exempt from disclosure under section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (personal information), where to release it would contravene the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). In order to comply with the DPA, disclosure of personal data under the FOIA must be fair (the first data protection principle). Having taken this into account, the CCG has decided that it would not be fair to release the requested information, as this could enable identification of the persons concerned. This information is therefore exempt under FOIA section 40(2).

4. What information do you hold or have access to showing, or having the potential to show, the following:

a) patient incidents in the time between referral to CAMHS and first appointment?
b) serious case investigations in the time between referral to CAMHS and first appointment?
c) patient suicides in the time between referral to CAMHS and first appointment?

Please see the attached spreadsheet and explanatory notes.

5. How many a) patient incidents b) serious case investigations c) patient suicides have there been between the date of first referral to CAMHS and the date of first appointment in the last three calendar years?

Please see the attached spreadsheet and explanatory notes

6. Please provide me with a copy of the CAMHS referrals dataset, including (but not limited to) the following fields of information (where available): the date of the referral; the date of the first appointment; the tier and type of CAMHS care the referral was for; whether or not the patient attended the first appointment; the reasons for non attendance; the severity of the case; any other non-exempt field of information. Please provide this as a linked dataset in a machine-readable format, as you are required to under the dataset provisions of the Act.
