Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail. Given the current situation with the second surge of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak we are taking steps to protect our patients, staff and any visitors. This means we have very limited resources to respond to requests for information and ask that you consider the following before making a request.

If you are making a Freedom of Information request please consider if this is vital at this point in time and if you can cancel or delay asking for information until we have returned to normal service. If your request is essential please consider requesting the minimum information possible. We are unlikely to be able to respond in a timely manner as the majority of requests are answered by the clinical and operational staff within the various departments in the Trust. These are often the same staff who are busy dealing with patient care, directly treating and managing Covid-19 patients or are supporting these staff and the service in the care of patients.

Please let us know if you have any further queries or information related to this request. Our reference number for the request is FOI 98615; please quote this on all correspondence.

Thank you for your consideration. If you have any further queries, please contact the Information Governance department at [email address].

Yours faithfully,
