See response attached to following FOI question - Posed the question because in other parts of Dorset outside our area.
Inpatients from two mental Health units were expected to attend the Jobcentre. Confirmed by the Local Partnership Manager when we asked him about it.
‘Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FoI) request received on 28 October. You asked:
Is there an expectation for hospital inpatients e.g. patients in Mental Health Units in hospitals and Oncology units etc. To attend jobcentres to e.g. verify ID, agree claimant commitments or Interviews per se or does the department offer alternatives to this’.
