Under the Act, there are 23 exemptions that can be applied to the

*Please note: University College London Hospitals (UCLH) is committed to
the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

However, the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges relating to the
coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic at the current time.  Understandably, our
resources have been diverted to support our front-line colleagues who are
working tremendously hard to provide care for our patients, and to those
in need of our services.

 

We strive to be transparent and to work with an open culture.  But at this
time, whilst care of our patients and the safety of our staff take
precedent, it is likely that responses to some requests for information
will be delayed.  We apologise for this position in advance, and will
endeavour to provide you with as much information as we can, as soon as we
are able.

 

The Information Commissioners Office has recognised the current situation
in the NHS.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Cindy
