FOI Requests and Responses

We shall publish a list of FOI requests received by year in this section along with our responses.

 

From 2009, we shall include the Trust’s response to each request received on these pages. We will not publish details of the requester or any other patient or staff identifiable information. Due to the volume of requests, these pages will be updated on a monthly basis.

 

Under the terms of the Act we shall try to respond to all requests within 20 working days. However, where key staff members are sick or on leave we may ask for an extension to this deadline. This may also be the case if we need to seek further advice before releasing the materials. Delays do occur if the request is not sent directly to the FOI team (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Currently the Trust does not apply a charge for requests but we are entitled to refuse a request (or requests from the same person) if the estimated cost of collection is greater than £450 (equivalent to 18 hours of staff time at £25 per hour).
