Dear NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group,

What are the terms of your out of hours service provision?
who provides this?
what is your service level agreement wrt response times for triage, clinic appointments and visits.

how do you validate the data you receive from your OOH provider?

do you perform random sampling?

Do you oblige your ooh provider to ensure doctors and nurses working overnight do not work the following day in primary care, in the interests of patient and their own, safety? if not why not?
Who is your medical director?
what are your clinical governance arrangements?

how often do you meet with the ooh provider to review performance and complaints?

how many gp appointments are they required to provide per 1000 patients, per week?

have you amended the terms of the contract with the ooh provider following investigation and review of complaints they have received?

do they ever reset or amend breached visit times or triage times?

how do you check to prevent this occurring?

what is the contract budget value for the ooh provision?
what is the rate paid by your ooh provider to the gp and nurse staff, is this in line with national trends?

What is the value of the contingency fund held by your OOH provider? What is its intended use?
note i have contacted LCD and they state they are not obliged t provide foi information, and to seek it from yourselves.
Is it not the case that all parties contracting with the nhs are reuired to comply with the Freedom of Information Act as a specific term in their contract?
when is the contract due for tender?

Yours faithfully,

Gillian Lansley
