Dear FOIRequest,

As per my original request, my questions relate to the appointment of a data protection officer under Article 39 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

With thanks
Alex.

FOIRequest,

Dear Alex Hydell,

Thank you for our clarification, I write to ask for an extension to the above FOI request. Unfortunately, due to other work commitments the relevant staff members require more time. I am hopeful that we will have your response to you before the 40 days.

Kind regards,

Dear FOIRequest,

Thank you for your email.

However I do not permit additional time for the processing of my request. You have taken 20 days to seek clarification to a question which was unambiguous and did not require clarification. My response to you was to reiterate my original request and provide you with no additional information. You have used the clarification to delay responding to this request, which is not in the spirit of openness and transparency.

Additionally, FOI does not permit extra time where officers have not handled a request due to 'work commitments' and the additional time may only be requested in exceptional circumstances. This is not an exceptional circumstance.

I expect your response no later than Tuesday June 13th, after which I will be seeking an internal review and requesting an investigation from the Information Commissioner's Office.

Yours sincerely,

Alex Hydell

Dear East London NHS Foundation Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of East London NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Data Protection Officer Appointment'.

Your Trust unfairly delayed seeking clarification until 19 workings days. The clarification was completely unnecessary and therefore I assume was entirely designed to delay the response.

An extension was requested due to other work commitments of staff which is not an acceptable reason for extending. And no further response has been made.

The request is a simple one - your trust either has a DPO or doesn't under GDPR, it has either discussed it or it hasn't. There is no need for a delay like this.
