Time and money spent on Medicine and Dentistry Admission FOIs

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

I would like to request some information about the staff resource used to respond to FOI requests about Medicine and Dentistry Admissions data.

1. How many FOI requests has QMUL received relating to Medicine and Dentistry admissions each year for the last 5 years?
2. How much staff time, as a resource, has been taken to respond to these FOI requests?
3. Approximately how much, in terms of salary, has responding to these FOI requests cost?
4. What steps does QMUL take to make Medicine and Dentistry admissions data public and transparent? What information is public and what information is kept private?

Yours faithfully,

Jack Juckes
