FOI Request - Children Act 1989 Section 47
This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I would like to request the following information:
For each of the years 2010 and 2020, how many investigations under section 47 of the Children Act 1989 involved any of these terms in the referral:
Fabricated or Induced Illness or FII
Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy or MSbP
Perplexing Presentation or PP
Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another or FDIoA
Snomed Code System Concept Code: 95637005
How many of those investigations led to a child protection plan, and how many resulted in no further action being taken?
The Children Act 1989 does not apply in Scotland and so, in accordance with section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, we can confirm that this information is not held.
