Dear Sir,

The NI Guardian ad Litem Agency received your FOI request last night. Normally when we receive such a request we would ask the individual to submit a request to each Trust within NI, rather than forward it to ourselves.

Unfortunately the NIGALA would not be in a position to answer your queries as this information would be held by each individual HSC Trust. For your convenience I have listed below the email addresses for the FOI teams in each HSC Trust:

Belfast Trust: [email address]
Northern Trust: [email address]
South-Eastern Trust: [email address]
Southern Trust: [email address]
Western Trust: [email address]

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me, or conversely contact the Trusts directly as they may better placed to respond directly.

Many regards,

Mike Hampson
NIGALA
Information Manager
