Thank you for your request for information about the following:
‘Under Freedom of Information, I would like to request the number of Total Entitled Beneficiaries (adult claimants actively receiving payments) to Healthy Start in County Durham for the months of April 2022, May 2022, June 2022, July 2022, August 2022 and September 2022.’
Your request was received on 26th October 2022 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
A copy of the data is attached.
The data published on the NHS Healthy Start website up to March 2022 relates to beneficiaries, which is the person who the benefit is meant for (the child or pregnant person).
Data relating to the scheme from April 2022 onwards is provided as number of households. This relates to the household or adult claimant actively receiving the payments. There could be multiple beneficiaries living within one household. Therefore, data provided by household is not comparable to data by beneficiary.
The data above is reported as of the final day of each month.
If you have any queries regarding the data provided, or if you plan on publishing the data please contact email@example.com ensuring you quote the above reference. This is important to ensure that the figures are not misunderstood or misrepresented.
If you plan on producing a press or broadcast story based upon the data please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This is important to ensure that the figures are not misunderstood or misrepresented.
Failure to do so is a breach of the terms of the licence.
