Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Queen Mary University of London.

Dear Queen Mary, University of London,

I would like to request, for each of the 4 treatment arms of the PACE trial, the 6 min walking test data

a) before treatment and
b) (where available) at follow-up (52 weeks)

I appreciate that my previous request was denied due to it being deemed to require the creation of new data. This request has been carefully chosen to avoid that problem, consisting of a request to supply a list of numbers for each of the 4 treatment arms of the trial.

Yours faithfully,

Anna Sheridan

Dear Dr. Sheridan

 

Thank you for your email.

 

I am afraid that we deem your request to be vexatious and therefore refuse
it under s.14(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Please accept this as a refusal notice.

 

If you are dissatisfied then you have the right to appeal to the
Information Commissioner. Please see [1]www.ico.org.uk for details.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Queen Mary, University of London,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Queen Mary, University of London's handling of my FOI request 'Raw 6mwt Data after treatment'.

I am particularly surprised that you see my request as vexatious - it is certainly not my intention. Rather, this is a genuine attempt to find a way to get a better understanding of the 6mwt PACE data in a way that is acceptable to QMUL. As I stated in my request, I acknowledge that a previous request of mine was considered to require the creation of new data. This present request asks only for a list of numbers for each of the 4 treatment arms of the trial (which QMUL have acknowledged they hold), and was carefully defined in the hope that it would be not be too time-consuming or onerous for QMUL to fulfil.

As I've stated before, I have a genuine interest in this data, as both a scientist and as a patient.

I would be grateful if you could reconsider this request, and
provide reasons why you think the request is considered vexatious.
