Dear Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request '1988 - 1991 Factor Files'.

I would like to invite you to reconsider your response, which appears to be a generic one. If you wish to uphold that response you will no doubt face an extremely awkward situation with NHS England due to the Rule 9 legal orders in place from the Infected Blood Inquiry which demand retention of all such records. I look forward to you reconsidered reply.

Yours faithfully,

JJ Evans

Dear Mr Evans,

 

Unfortunately we cannot find the information you have requested. The
earliest revision of the “Control of Records” pathology policy from 2007
states that these types of records are kept for a minimum of 4 years.
Therefore, it is likely that these records were disposed of (if they were
even available in the first instance).

 

Kind regards,
