FOI Request Occupational Therapy

Request 101001486032

Could the Local Authority provide information on waiting times for occupational therapy appointments.

I am interested in:

• The average wait for an OT appointment in 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2015-16;
• The longest wait for an OT appointment in 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2015-16;
• The average wait for an OT home assessment in 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2015-16;
• The longest wait for an OT home assessment in 2013-14, 2014-15, and 2015-16.
