Elodie Green made this Official Information request to Lakes District Health Board

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Lakes District Health Board should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Elodie Green

Dear Lakes District Health Board,

I am seeking information on the performance and service of DHBs for their provision of mental health services. I would like data for the following:

For all of your Mental Health health services including Child and adolescent metal health; adult mental health, emergency, acute, crisis response; elderly, I would like the following:
• Number of new entries/cases per month, by age group (five year bands if possible*), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of cases open at month end, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of people exiting per month, by age group (five year bands if possible*), 2015 – 2020 calendar year

For the DHB:
• Number of hospitalisations for mental health per year, emergency and non-emergency, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of people waitlisted to see a psychologist per year, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of people seeing a psychologist, per year, by age group (five year bands), 2015 – 2020 calendar year
• Number of psychologists employed by the DHB at year end (split by part time, full time, contracted) by year, 2015 – 2020 calendar year

*Five year bands are ideally 0 – 5, 6 – 10, 11 -15, 16- 20, 21 – 25, 26 -30, etc. If there is too much suppression in those age bands can it please be in ten year age bands.

Yours faithfully,

Elodie Green
