Please acknowledge receipt of this request.
Thank you for your email.
We acknowledge receipt of your request.
You will be aware of the significant pressures on our health and social
care services during the current third surge of the Covid-19
pandemic. During this time we have been asking our staff to prioritise
their professional caring duties and to support frontline health and
social care services in responding to the emergency. This has
understandably had an impact on other duties within their role such as
responding to legislative requirements under FOI and the processing of
Subject Access Requests.

do our utmost to respond as quickly as possible.
