Drugs: Rehabilitation

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many and what proportion of people who received drug treatment had to wait (a) less than three weeks and (b) more than three weeks in each of the last three years, broken down by the smallest geographical area for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. (251247)

The National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse collects data on local services via the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System.

The information requested is only available for 2006-07 and 2007-08 and is shown in the table, broken down by Drug Action Team (DAT).

Numbers under five have been suppressed in accordance with procedures to preserve the confidentiality of information which could potentially identify individual patients.
