Dear Mr Hallright, 
 
Request under Freedom of Information Act 2000 
 
Request Ref: NGFOI 10/11: 037 
Review Response Letter  
 
 
We received a Freedom of Information (FOI) request from you on 21st May 2010 at Northampton 
General Hospital NHS Trust (NGH) concerning bonuses paid to the Trust’s Executive team in 
2008/09. 
 
We were sorry to learn that you were not happy with our response to your request.  In that 
response, we advised you that any bonuses paid to the Chief Executive/Executive Team are 
published in the Trust’s Annual Report and we provided a link to the report on the Trust website 
(because the information was exempt from disclosure under s21 of the Freedom of Information Act 
2000 – Information accessible by other means). 
 
You had looked at the report and had not found the remuneration details broken down between 
salary and bonus payment in the remuneration report.  You state that it is shown as one figure only. 
 
You were therefore requesting that we: 
a)  give you the information from your original request or 
b)  indicate the page in the Annual Report where this information is given 
 
We have now undertaken a review of our response to your FOI request following consultation with 
the appropriate members of staff at NGH.  I am now pleased that we are now able to provide you 
with the information shown on the following page as a result of that review.

Review of Response from Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust (NGH) to FOI request 
Ref: NGFOI 10/11: 037 
 
 
On enquiry, I have established that there were no “bonuses” paid to the Trust’s Executive 
team or other Trust staff in 2008/09.  
 
We do not therefore hold information that meets the specification of your request. 
 
Please accept our sincere apologies that the correct information was not provided to you in the 
original response and for any inconvenience that this may have caused.   
 
However, had any “bonuses” been paid to the Trust’s Executive team in the 2008/09 year the page 
and table in the Annual Report and Accounts for that year (that you were directed to in our original 
response letter) would have been the appropriate document/page/table to find the information 
requested? 
 
 
 
I hope that you will find the information provided helpful. I also hope that you will be satisfied with 
the manner in which we have dealt with your request review. If not, please do let me know. Once 
again, I enclose a Freedom of Information complaints procedure at Northampton General Hospital 
NHS Trust leaflet for your information. 
 
If you remain dissatisfied after the internal review, you may make an approach to the Information 
Commissioner as outlined in the enclosed leaflet. 
 
If there is anything you need clarification on, please do not hesitate to contact me. 
 
Yours sincerely, 
 
 
Gwenneth McConnell
