Dear Mr Everett

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST – Ref No: 005710

 

Thank you for your email of the 11 May 2020 where you requested
information about:

 

Please provide all emails about COVID-19 between this council and these
care home providers:

- HC-One

- Four Seasons

- Barchester

- Bupa

- Care UK

- Renaissance

 

Please also provide all emails about COVID-19 between this council and all
local authority-run care homes.

 

As a timeframe, please carry out a search between 1st February and 7th
May.

 

From our preliminary assessment, it is clear that we will not be able to
answer your request without further clarification.

 

Mansfield District Council requires further information in order to
identify and locate the information you have asked for.  In particular, it
would be useful to know if you are aware that Mansfield District Council
does not provide social care services as these are the responsibility of
Nottinghamshire County Council in our district?  Whilst you are entitled
under the Freedom of Information Act to make this request I wanted to make
you aware that your request will divert staff away from frontline services
supporting our Coronavirus response and it is unlikely that we will have
communicated with these care home providers.  Should you still wish us to
conduct this search please let me know.

 

Once you have clarified your request, I will be able to begin to process
your request.  If I do not receive clarification within three months your
request will be considered to have lapsed.  (Under section 1(3) of the
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), a public authority need not comply with
a request unless any further information reasonably required to locate the
information is supplied).

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

Yours sincerely
