Tables 1a (i), 1a (ii) and 1b (i), 1b (ii)
Unplanned reviews were discussed in measure LTS002a and the definition here is the same.
The separation of long term support settings (‘prison’, ‘nursing and residential settings’ etc.) is the same as for LTS002a and the Significant Events work in an identical way. The total clients in a prison setting must be added for tables 1a (i) and 1b (i). Enter zero if there were no clients reviewed in prison by your local authority. For those councils where there is no prison in the area, the cells should be left blank.
All unplanned reviews and their sequels captured in this measure are therefore also recorded in LTS002a - this measure is a subset of the client captured in LTS002a. This means no new analysis needs to take place for these tables as the clients with more than 12 months of continuous long term support have already been identified in LTS001c. The data can therefore be ‘reused’. Please see the guidance for that measure for details.
Because clients can have more than one review during the year, a total number of clients should also be calculated and entered at the bottom of the table, within the cell labelled ‘Total clients in table’. This is required for all the review tables in SALT.
Tables 2a, 2b
Planned reviews are those that happen routinely, usually at regular intervals, as distinct from unplanned reviews that are triggered by significant events. The local authority should be able to distinguish between planned and unplanned reviews from their client database, and report only planned reviews here.
Because there are no significant events for planned reviews, both age bands (18 to 64 and 65 and over) are captured in the same table. The separation of long term support settings (‘prison’, ‘nursing and residential settings’ etc.) is the same as for LTS002a. The sequels are identical to those outlined in measure LTS002a (please see the guidance for that measure for details).
Table 3 requires a check on which clients have received both planned and unplanned reviews during the year. Combined with the client totals counted in the other tables of this measure, an analysis can be made of what proportion of clients with more than 12 months of long term support were reviewed during the year, which might be useful for service performance management purposes.
