Dear Claire
 
Please accept sincere apologies for the delay in our response.
 
Indeed COVID-19 has meant we have not been able to respond to FOI requests
as quickly as we would have liked.  We are working through a FOI backlog
which was put on hold to deal with the Covid-19 urgent response, and we
are doing everything we can to minimise its impact.  I will chase up your
request with relevant colleagues, and will provide you a response as soon
as possible.
 
Thanks again for your patience thus far.
 
Kind regards
Bimpe

Dear Ms Ness

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request below. Please
accept our apologies for the delay in responding to your request which was
due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

 

In your request you have asked for:

 

I am requesting the release of the London Ambulance Service (LAS) NHS
Trust’s Incident Response Procedures, as managed by the LAS NHS Trust’s
Resilience Team as part of the LAS Emergency Preparedness, Response and
Recovery (EPRR) framework.

 

Our response

I confirm that we hold this information. A copy of this document is
attached. Please note that some text has been redacted as some of the
information contained is confidential. Section 40(2) for the purposes of
section 40(3) (a) (i) provides an exemption for information which is the
personal data of any third party, where disclosure would contravene any of
the data protection principles contained in the DPA.

 

Disclosure of the identities and email addresses of these staff may lead
to potential disruption which could be caused from staff being emailed
directly, as opposed to going through normal contact channels such as a
switch board. The Trust’s position is that there is no legitimate interest
in disclosing the names of junior staff as they are not responsible for
projects and policies which are sufficiently high profile to merit a
public interest in knowing their identities and email addresses. It would
therefore be unfair to disclose this information and a breach of the 1^st
Data Protection Principle. There also is the risk of senior managers being
continuously disrupted if their contact details were disclosed into the
public domain. The Directors at the Trust on the other hand are held
accountable for such projects and policies in accordance with their level
of involvement and hold overall corporate responsibility at the London
Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

By way of advice and assistance, please note that Khadir Meer, Chief
Operating Officer, is the Accountable Emergency Officer, and his email
address is [1][email address]. Paul Woodrow has left the
London Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

 

Section 38(1)(a) of the FOI Act exempts information which would, or would
be likely to endanger the physical or mental health of any individual.
Section 38 is a qualified exemption and, as such, we are required to
assess both the prejudice test and the public interest test in withholding
this information against that of its release.

When assessing the prejudice test, London Ambulance Service NHS Trust need
to demonstrate that there would be an impact on an individual’s health and
safety should the information be released. London Ambulance Service NHS
Trust is also required to conduct the public interest test, which assesses
whether releasing the information would be in the public interest despite
the prejudice test being satisfied. Please note that some of the
information contained in the document is protectively marked under the NHS
security arrangements which prohibits the sharing of the content in its
entirety on the basis that this could hamper response to a major incident,
and pose a risk to safety of staff when responding to an incident.As such,
we are engaging this exemption for the reason specified and in the public
interest and safety.

We hope the above response is helpful. However, if you are unhappy with
our response, or the way in which your request has been handled, you may
request an internal review by writing to:

Dear London Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of London Ambulance Service NHS Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Incident Response Procedures'.

Having seen copies of the IRP elsewhere prior to this request, I am led to believe that there is more than one part to it; parts which you have not disclosed.

Please consider disclosing these also. I am happy to share further details of the document which I’ve seen, if you require clarification.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/i...

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Ness
 
Further to your internal review request regarding FOI response 4078 in
which we provided you with a redacted version of the London Ambulance
Service (LAS) NHS Trust’s Incident Response Procedures, due to
confidential information contained with the document subject to Section
40(2) for the purposes of section 40(3) (a) (i) provides an exemption for
information which is the personal data of any third party, where
disclosure would contravene any of the data protection principles
contained in the DPA.
 
In your request for internal review you asked:
Having seen copies of the IRP elsewhere prior to this request, I am led to
believe that there is more than one part to it; parts which you have not
disclosed.
Please consider disclosing these also. I am happy to share further details
of the document which I’ve seen, if you require clarification.
Our response
We have contacted our colleagues in the Trust’s Resilience Team and they
confirmed that the document that was provided was the full IRP. 
 
Please note however that under section 16 of the FOI Act, the Trust has a
duty to provide advice and assistance in relation to requests which
require clarification. As a result and in order to be able to provide you
with the necessary information, we are writing to seek further
clarification and to ask if you would like to consider refining your
request to articulate the request in case the information that you are
seeking is known under an alternative title.
 
Please note that under Section 1(3) of the FOI Act your request has been
put on hold until this clarification has been provided.
 
Yours sincerely

Dear FOI Admin,

The copy of your Incident Response Procedures that was disclosed to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry (their reference LAS00000008) contains five sections, as opposed to the copy disclosed to me, which only contains one.

I believe that this confusion has come about in that the overall document is known as the "Incident Response Procedures", whereas the single section that you provided is known as the "Incident Response Plan". I hope that this clears up my position.

Yours sincerely,
Claire Ness
