Dear Dr Julian,

 

Request for Information

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act (FOI) request, as received
on 18 March 2019 and acknowledged on 21 March 2019.   For information, the
University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust is one of the largest and
busiest NHS teaching Trusts in the country incorporating the Leicester
Royal Infirmary, Glenfield and Leicester General Hospitals. Our three
hospitals have around 15,000 staff serving around 1.2 million people
across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, and a further two to three
million people from the rest of the UK who come to us for treatment from
one of our specialist services.  During 2017/18 we treated 1,410,500
patients - that’s 3,864 patients each day.

 

Following consultation with colleagues from the Trust’s Corporate Medical
and Corporate Nursing teams, I confirm that the University Hospitals of
Leicester NHS Trust holds information covered by your FOI request. 

 

I am advised that a manual review of cases in response to your request
would exceed the 18-hour ‘appropriate limit’ provided for under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 - in reliance on section 12 of that Act
the Trust is not, therefore, progressing your request further.  It may be
that if you were able to refine your request, there might be information
which could be provided to you within that 18-hour ‘appropriate limit’. 
However, in line with the Trust’s duty to advise and assist requesters
(section 16 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000), I am able to provide
some information to you regarding the following elements of your request:

 

2) The number of deaths of patients with a learning disability reported as
an incident on the National Reporting and Learning System (NLRS) in the
last three years (defined as above)

 

April 16 – March 17 = 0

April 17 – March 18 = 0

April 18 – March 19 = 0

 

 

3) The number of deaths of patients with a learning disability reported as
an incident on the Strategic Executive Information System (STEIS) in the
last three years (defined as above)

 

April 16 – March 17 = 0

April 17 – March 18 = 0

April 18 – March 19 = 0

 

 

I hope that this response is helpful and provides you with the information
requested (where available).  If you require any further assistance please
do not hesitate to contact me.  If you are dissatisfied with the Trust’s
response, you can contact the Director of Corporate and Legal Affairs on
Tel. No. 0116 258 8615 to request a copy of UHL’s Freedom of Information
Act complaints procedure.

 

We must advise you that where we have provided information we have done so
subject to the provisions of the Re-use of Public Sector Information
Regulations 2005.  Accordingly you must not re-use this information
without having the consent of the Trust.  Where the Trust is prepared to
provide its consent then it may levy a charge for doing so. Should you
wish to re-use documents provided then you must make your request in
writing stating your name and your address for correspondence together
with the document that you wish to re-use and the purpose for which the
information is to be re-used.

 

In the event that you remain dissatisfied with the way in which the Trust
has handled any complaint that you may wish to make, we would advise you
of your right to complain to the Information Commissioner at the
Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Yours sincerely,
