Dear Mr Paulley,

We write further to your email of 25th October made under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust's response against each element of your request is shown below and attached in XLS format.

Please can you supply me with a list of the drugs prescribed by the internal pharmacy for the last 12 months, and the total cost to the pharmacy of purchasing each specific drug over the past 12 months. For example:
Paracetamol - amount paid to suppliers for the last 12 months in £ For every drug you prescribe.

A list of drugs and consumables issued from November 2018 to Oct 2019 is attached.

With respect to the costs for each drug we prescribe, we consider it to be exempt from disclosure, on the grounds of commercial sensitivity, under Section 43(2) of the FOI Act. In considering the application of the exemption, the Trust considers that disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice its own commercial interests and those of the contractors concerned.

The Trust has weighed factors for and against disclosure and we conclude that the public interest is better served by maintaining the confidentiality of the information, which includes local contracts and may put our suppliers at a commercial disadvantage.

We hope however that the information provided will be of use to you.

Yours sincerely

Information Governance Team
