Dear Team, Foi, Ms. Karen,

Thank you for your response today from Southern Health & Social Care Trust.

I would like to appeal against the Trusts decision to refuse information as they feel the cost would exceed £450.

All Financial departments now have a sophisticated accounting system which enables information to be downloaded using the in-built software. This software should have filters to enable data without compromising any sensitive information. As an accountant myself I use this facility extensively.

We feel the cost in downloading and assessing the data should not exceed £450 as much of the work would be done by the machine itself. We therefore would like to appeal against the Trusts refusal to provide information as they feel the cost will exceed the threshold.

To narrow my scope - We are looking for payments to suppliers who provide a service in Health and Social Care ONLY. This would include all suppliers falling under the following categories :-

1. Payments to suppliers who provide fostering and adoption services to all the councils under the Trust
2. Payments to suppliers who provide care services to all the councils under the Trust. This would include suppliers who provide care under each of the categories below --
a. Children's Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
b. Adult Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
c. Elderly Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
d. Domiciliary Care Home Providers
e. Supported Living Care Home Providers
f. Care at Home Providers
g. Providers who carry out Homeless Services
3. Payments to suppliers who provide Special Education Services

In particular I am looking for itemized transactions for all suppliers from 1st April 2017 - 31st December 2018 - preferably in a CSV format. I sincerely hope the Trust may now accommodate my request.

Thank you very much & Kind Regards,
Yours Faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

Team, Foi, Southern Health and Social Care Trust (Northern Ireland)
