Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Please could you tell me what happened to the report which you must obviously have had. Where is it now, where was it transferred to or when was it destroyed?

Dear
Ms Fox,

 

Thank you for your further correspondence of 1 October about an historical
report.  I have been asked to reply.

Officials
have advised that the Righton report was not a Department of Health
publication
and, as such, does not form part of the Department’s archive.  

I
am sorry I cannot be more helpful. 

Yours sincerely,

 

Natasha Slade

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Whether the Righton Report was a Health Dept publication or not, the Health secretary asked for it , even perhaps commissioned it and yet now DHSC claim they do not have a copy.
I am simply asking under S16 what happened to it? Is the health department so slack and careless that they just lose thee reports with no trace. If so an investigation should be held as to what happened to it and how to change procedures so that Reports are not just randomly or deliberately lost.

Yours faithfully,

Cathy Fox

Dear Ms Fox,

 

Thank you for your further correspondence of 5 November about an
historical
report.  I have been asked to reply.

I appreciate your concerns about
this matter.  However, I note that you
have written to the Department of Health and Social Care previously on a
number
of occasions about this issue and I am afraid that there is nothing
further
that I can add.

 

I am sorry if this is not the reply
that you were hoping for, but as there is nothing further that the
Department
can add, we must now consider this matter to be closed.  Unless you raise
a new question, any further
letters sent to the Department will be logged but may not receive a reply.

Yours sincerely,

 

Rory Howard

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

I note your reply which is a typical bureaucratic reply, designed not to even attempt to answer the question. It also covers up the mysterious disappearance of an important document of national importance which was in the hands of department that appears incompetent to look after things of this kind, or perhaps things even more sinister, that DHSC is refusing to even look into.

Yours faithfully,

Cathy Fox
