If your enquiry or complaint is about secondary care, this includes
hospitals, NHS 111, mental health services, out-of-hours services and
community services such as district nursing, you will need to contact the

attend your local Accident and Emergency department if you are able to do
so.
If you require non-urgent medical advice please contact your GP, local
walk-in or urgent healthcare centre, or call NHS 111. Calls are free from

You should also advise your dentist or optician of a change of name or
address as they keep their own records.

Dear FOITEAMCRMMAILBOX (NHS ENGLAND & NHS IMPROVEMENT - X24),

The local CCGs to which I have addressed the same request have in turn referred me to NHS England. Which national organisation is likely to have this centre accreditation data?
The provision for Tier 3 and Tier 4 Bariatric Centres is specified in NHS England publications. Local CCGs have advised that it's Primary Care Trusts which would hold this data, but to my knowledge, Primary Care Trusts no longer exist - the role of which is now undertaken centrally by NHS England. Could you kindly advise?

Yours sincerely,

Jay Simon

Dear NHS England,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of NHS England's handling of my FOI request 'List of Tier 3 and Tier 4 Bariatric Centres'.

I have made this request to primary care providers, and CCGs, all of whom have directed me back to yourselves. I am seeking a list of nationally accredited centres - and to my knowledge this data should be held centrally at national commissioning level by NHS England.

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

Jay Simon

Dear NHS England,

I would like to add that NHS England publishes the relevant service specification for these centres here: https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/up... and it therefore stands to reason that the list of centres meeting this specification will be held by NHS England.

Dear Jay Simon,  

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request dated 15 March
2021.

Your exact request was:

Bariatric surgery services used to be commissioned by NHS England but
commissioning responsibility for adult obesity surgery (Tier 4) was
transferred  to Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) during 2016/17. Tier
3 services were already within the remit of CCGs.

Please see the links below to the CCG guidance from the NHS England

FOITEAMCRMMAILBOX (NHS ENGLAND & NHS IMPROVEMENT - X24), NHS England

Dear Jay Simon,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) Internal Review request
dated 24 March 2021. Please accept our apologies for the delay in
response.

Your original FOI request was received by NHS England on 7 March 2021, and
read:-

Could you please provide me with a list of the accredited Tier 3 and the
Tier 4 Bariatric centres/services in England? Could you please include:
The respective tier level, the local NHS Trust, the name of the
hospital(s), and the clinical and/or surgical lead?

Your Internal Review request was received by NHS England on 24 March 2021,
and read:-

 Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information
reviews. I am writing to request an internal review of NHS England's
handling of my FOI request 'List of Tier 3 and Tier 4 Bariatric Centres'.
I have made this request to primary care providers, and CCGs, all of whom
have directed me back to yourselves. I am seeking a list of nationally
accredited centres - and to my knowledge this data should be held
centrally at national commissioning level by NHS England.”

The FOI Management team have reviewed your request and this letter
provides the outcome of this review. It may be helpful if we first explain
that an Internal Review looks at the handling of, and response given to, a
Freedom of Information request which has previously been made. The scope
of an Internal Review is therefore limited to considering whether the
request(s) was appropriately handled and whether the response given was
accurate and appropriate. An Internal Review cannot consider any new
queries not originally included in the relevant FOI request(s); these
should be submitted as new FOI requests via our Contact Centre.

It was noted that your original response was issued within the statutory
guidelines of 20 working days.

We have also assessed whether you received an appropriate response to your
request and considered the comments you have set out in your Internal
Review email.

It may help if we first explain that NHS England is not the same as ‘the
NHS in England’. The NHS in England is not a single organisation but is
made up of a range of organisations such as Hospitals, Clinical
Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Ambulance Trusts. NHS England is
responsible for commissioning primary care services such as GP and dental
surgeries, as well as some specialised secondary care services. Therefore,
any recorded information NHS England may be able to provide in response to
an FOI request will generally relate to the services NHS England
commissions. As NHS England does not commission bariatric services we do
not hold any relevant information.

As set out in our previous response, Tier 3 and Tier 4 bariatric services
are commissioned by Clinical Commissioning Groups, which are responsible
for commissioning similar secondary care services. Therefore, any
information relating to bariatric services should be held by the CCGs
themselves.

It is therefore the conclusion of this review that NHS England’s original
response was accurate. In line with the above, our original response is
upheld.

As outlined in our previous response, this information may be held by
individual CCGs. As such, you may wish to redirect your enquiry to
individual CCGs. You can find CCG contact information on the NHS website
at the following web link:

[1]http://www.nhs.uk/ServiceDirectories/Pag...

We hope that this addresses your concerns. However, if you are not content
with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information
Commissioner’s Office (ICO) can be contacted at:
