Dear Andrea Silva

The Trust has received your request, however, before we can proceed we require some clarification from you.

You have asked for non-Covid related deaths and referenced 'since March'.

Please can you specify the exact dates which you are seeking information between? E.g. 1 March - 5 June 2020, or 23 March - 5 June 2020?

Please be aware that the Trust may take longer than usual to respond to your request as we are anticipating increasing operational pressures due to Covid-19.

If you decide that you no longer require the information that you have requested, we would encourage you to withdraw your request so that our team can focus on other requests and our services can focus on other work.

In accordance with the FOI Act and the FOI Code of Practice, your request will be put on hold while we wait your clarification and the clock restarted once sufficient clarification has been received. If we do not receive a clarification from you within 2 months of this email we will consider the request closed.

PALMER-EDWARDS, Sarah (BARTS HEALTH NHS TRUST), Barts Health NHS Trust

Dear A. Silva,

As the Head of Information Governance, your email has been escalated to me. I'd like to apologise that we haven't been able to respond to your FOI request within the statutory timescales. This has been as a result of increased operational pressures across the organisation during the last few months. I've looked into the current status of your request and can confirm that we will be responding to you within the next week.

We won't be conducting a formal internal review, as these apply when you are challenging a decision that has been made (e.g. withholding information using an exemption), but I'd like to make you aware of your right to raise a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office - details available here: https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/

Once again, I'm sincerely sorry that on this occasion we haven't been able to provide you with a response within the timescales that we are expected to.
