Please see the attached file [5665.xlsx].

 

You are probably aware that Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust,
which was formed on 1 April 2020 by merger of Mid Essex Hospital Services
NHS Trust (MEHT), Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS
Foundation Trust (BTUH) and Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation
Trust (SUHT).  Most of the facilities covered in your request were
installed before the merger.  Consequently, those responsible for them
have provided separate responses for each of the former trusts.

 

I hope that the response that the Trust has provided is satisfactory. 
However, if you are dissatisfied with the way in which your Freedom of
Information request has been dealt with you can request an internal
review. Please email [1][MSEFT request email] within 40 working days with

provide a review response within 20 working days.

 

If you remain dissatisfied, you have the right under section 50 of the Act
to apply to the Information Commissioner to seek resolution to the matter.
