This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust,

We submitted the following request to Durham County Council, who have responded stating they are unable to obtain the information requested and that you are commissioned to deliver the relevant services.

We appreciate your remit may be wider than Durham, 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 Durham County 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,

Preventx Limited

Dear cddftFOI (COUNTY DURHAM AND DARLINGTON NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

Thank you for your response and attachements.

We note that you have attached two ISO15189 schdules for TDL, including Issue 001 and Issue 003. Please can you provide Issue 002 and confirm that this also shows that Chlamydia trachomatis & Neisseria gonorrhoea are accreddited during the time this issue was in force.

Should this not be the case, we would request you reconsider you responses to our original FOI request, especially the final question:

“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 sincerely,

Preventx

Dear cddftFOI (COUNTY DURHAM AND DARLINGTON NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

Thank you for sending certificate 002 for TDL. We note that this schedule was in force from the 22nd October 2018 until the 20th June 2019 when it was updated (certificate 003).

You may note that some of the tests in question, that may have been carried out by your services in this period ( Chlamydia trachomatis & Neisseria gonorrhoea) are NOT listed on the schedule and were therefore not accredited at the time.

We really don't wish to appear vexatious, however given this new information that you were perhaps unaware of when this FOI chain started, I would appreciate it if you could re-address the following questions from our original request:

"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 sincerely,

Preventx

cddftFOI (COUNTY DURHAM AND DARLINGTON NHS FOUNDATION TRUST), County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust
