Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Herefordshire Council,

I would like to make an FOI request for all payments to suppliers who provide a service in Health and Social Care from SEP 2019 - DEC 2019 . This would include all suppliers falling under the categories :-

1. Payments to suppliers who provide fostering and adoption services to the Council (including payments made to Independent Fostering Agencies and for in-house fostering)
2. Payments to suppliers who provide care services to the council. This would include suppliers who provide care under each of 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 these suppliers - preferably in CSV format. I look forward to the information at the earliest.

Yours Faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

Dear Access To Information,

Thank you for your response, however, we disagree with your statement "It would in our view be possible to identify individuals from more specific itemisation of payments, and to learn the costs of their specific care. Such specific information therefore consists of the personal information of third parties"

Providing itemized transactions in no way compromises the data to expose "personal sensitive information". All the other councils in London have provided us with this data. We are not requesting personal information like names, addresses, etc. All we seem to ask is daily payments made to suppliers. Payments like "Fostering allowances" to individuals may be redacted so as to comply with the Act.

Hence, based on above, I would like to appeal your decision to refuse to provide us with itemized transactions.

Yours sincerely,
nikhil prabhu
