Dear Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust,

We submitted the following request to Telford & Wrekin Council, who have responded stating they are unable to obtain the information requested and that the request should be forwarded to yourselves.

We appreciate your remit is wider than Telford & Wrekin, and therefore in order to avoid unnecessary effort please consider the following request only to be in scope of service(s) provided under contract with Telford & Wrekin Council.

1. Have you commissioned (directly, or via subcontracting or via "pilot") remote/postal/self-sampling service(s) for sexual health, and if so which organisation(s) deliver the service(s)?

If yes to question 1, please respond to the following questions:

2. Though which route was the service commissioned (e.g. tender procurement, competitive quotes, etc), and what was the contract value?
3. Please confirm the commencement date(s), and to what date the contract(s) (or pilot) are due to expire (excluding any contract extension time)?
4. What is the name and location of the laboratory(ies) the contracted service directs patient samples to? If more than one laboratory is used by the service, please confirm which samples go where.
5. Upon contract award for the service (or "pilot"), what laboratory ISO accreditation(s), if any, were required and how were these accreditations checked?
6. For each laboratory, please provide either an electronic copy of the up to date UKAS ISO accreditation certificate(s) or the UKAS laboratory number(s).
7. If CPA accreditation was required (legacy since 2013 and obsolete as of October 2018) how has the commissioning authority checked the laboratory(ies) now meets ISO standards?
8. In the event samples have been tested outside of accreditation, please confirm the number of users/samples impacted, any corrective actions (both clinically and contractually), and if/when patient recall will be carried out.

Yours faithfully,
