Dear Lee

Thank you for your email. I have now logged your request with the following reference number: 49/21.

Your request for information is now being processed in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. It is hoped that a response will be provided to you by no later than 3 May 2021. However, please note that MCCG is currently handling a large volume of business critical work during the COVID-19 outbreak. Accordingly, requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 during the COVID-19 outbreak may have a longer response period than that stated. The response that you receive may also not be complete in whole or in part. This is because:

• Responding to your request may require business area resource which is currently directed towards the COVID-19 outbreak. Directing resources towards responding to your request could result in vital care of service not being delivered, and may expose individuals to COVID-19;
• Under government guidance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all MHCC staff who are able to are working from home until further notice. As such they may not be able to get hold of certain information which cannot be accessed remotely, and accessing it would potentially expose the individual to COVID-19

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

If it is identified that Manchester CCG holds the information you have requested, we would respectfully ask you not to publish this on any website or in any other publications where:

• a charge may be made to access it
• a subscription is charged to access the site.

Manchester CCG holds the copyright for any information produced and we are not prepared to authorise its re-use where a charge is made. This is in accordance with the provisions of the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005.

Kind regards,

Catherine

Dear NHS Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of NHS Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group's handling of my FOI request 'Procured healthcare providers.'.

The list provided is not complete. There are numerous other providers, such as Specsavers, Telederm, Spire etc.

Please also include specific services, in a useful fashion as one would reasonable expect; such as orthopaedics or gastroenterology, rather than vague general headings that are of little use.

I’ve requested this directly from your office previously to no avail. Please can you acknowledge receipt of this request.

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

Yours faithfully,

Lee Chapman

Dear Mr Chapman,

 

Many thanks for your email dated 1st July 2021 requesting an internal
review of the outcome to your Freedom of Information Act request.  Please
accept my sincere apologies for the delay in responding to your request,
MCCG are still currently handling a large volume of business critical work
during COVID-19. 

 

I can confirm that I was not party to the original decision on whether to
release any information held and I have reviewed the outcome in a fair and
impartial manner.

 

I have reassessed your case and after careful consideration I have
concluded that the initial response that was sent to you, your complaint
has been upheld.

 

Your FOI request asked for:

 

“Please supply a complete list of all healthcare providers, including
contact details and the all services that are supplied, which are procured
by the CCG for the Manchester catchment in its entirety as covered by the
CCG”

 

Response: Please see attached spreadsheet.  Contact details of the
providers will be publicly available online.

 

In your request for an Internal Review you state that :

 

“The list provided is not complete. There are numerous other providers,
such as Specsavers, Telederm, Spire etc.

Please also include specific services, in a useful fashion as one would
reasonable expect; such as orthopaedics or gastroenterology, rather than
vague general headings that are of little use.”

 

I have contacted the Contracts Department, who have since provided an
updated list of contracts which has been refreshed to reflect the current
position of the healthcare contracts which Manchester CCG holds.  It is
completed to the best of their knowledge.

 

You have a further right of appeal to the Information Commissioner’s
Office.  You can contact them at the Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF or via
[1]www.ico.org.uk .

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Shavarnah
