Dear Mr Smith,

 

I have been asked to contact you to seek clarification on your request.
Your request states:

 

“Dear University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust,

 

Q1 I would like to request the length of time people have to wait for a
wheelchair (when required), following surgery at university hospital north
Staffordshire. Last 3 years

 

Q2 I would also like to know the average length of stay in hospital that
is required due to the unavailability of wheelchairs. Last 3 years”.

 

 

To continue with your request we require clarification on:

 

Q1 which Trust/ Hospital you would like the information for?.

Q2 please can you clarify if you are referring to delayed
transfers/discharges due to the lack of a wheelchair?

 

Your request will therefore be paused until we fully understand the
information requested. We will continue to process your request when we
understand the information requested. If we do not hear from you within
two weeks we will close your request

 

Yours,
