Dr Colin Iain Campbell MBChB FRSPH

Dear NHS Improvement,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I would be interested in any information held by your organisation regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to specify particular files or documents and it is the departments responsibility to provide the information I require. If you need further clarification please contact me via this website (or email). I would like to request the following information:

1) Please confirm which email software you use at the client (eg outlook) and server side.
2)Please disclose search of former senior operational agency data and intelligence lead Martin Innes's emails for the following text/string (without the inverted commas):
a)'701/57'
b)'Sunday Times'
c) 'Loan Charge'
d) 'Loan scheme'
e) 'managed service'
f) Could any attachments sent to emails by individuals from the following companies also be searched for '701/057' and the email and attachment disclosed along with the email chain below it if the phrase is found:
i) 'Brookson' (including whether the name occurs as Brookson's , Brookson Direct, Brookson Legal or other)
ii) 'Holt Doctors' and/or 'Holt'
iii) 'Circular Wave' also as 'Circularwave'

Please specifically consider within scope:
1) All attachments
2) Both sent, and received messages
3) Any forwarded email chain beneath the messages.
4) Deleted messages folder - these are still held.

Exemptions and Public Interest:

Firstly, ALL non exempt material should be disclosed. Secondly, the following public interest representation is likely to be overwhelming in such cases. Where information is withheld subject to a 'qualified' exemption we would remind you of your duty to disclose the public interest reasoning explaining why you feel, given the below, the public interest does not favour disclosure.

Where the messages relate to Direct Engagement schemes we would point out that we are not aware of any CQC registered scheme providers amongst those direct engagement schemes claiming to provide medical/healthcare services through locums they 'wholly employ' and that provision of healthcare/medical services without such registration may constitute a criminal offence as this appears to be set out in Schedule 1 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The public interest overwhelmingly favours disclosure where it is possible NHS trusts are contacting with unregulated healthcare/medical service providers for the treatment of patients or, doubly so, if they are claiming VAT exemptions for this whilst doing no such thing in reality.

Thus section 43(1) Trade Secrets, and 43(2) Commercial Sensitivity considerations will be overpowered by public interest. These same reasons would also make it unlikely that court action for actionable breach of confidence would succeed - as public interest is also considered by the court as a grounds for disclosure in such cases, thus we expect that Section 41 exemptions will not be applied here, where an attempt is made to cite one we require that a clear and dated copy of a signed and dated non-disclosure agreement is disclosed (pursuant to the FOIA 2000) to confirm that there would be a basis for such action. Note that Section 36 exemptions are also qualified exemptions subject to a public interest test and ultimately need approval of a minister of the crown. If an attempt is made to cite one please disclose on which specific minister of the crown's authority the exemption is being employed and, if different, the name and job title of the "qualified person" authorised by this minister or via FIOA 2000 S.36(5)(a)-(n).

I would like the information to be provided by email or on this website in electronic form. If my request is denied in whole or in part I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days as outlined by the statute. Many thanks for your assistance with this request.

Yours faithfully,
Dr Colin Iain Campbell MBChB FRSPH
