Dear Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:

1. When does the neutral vend contract for doctor supply come to an end?
2. What percentage fill rates (doctors) were reached between January and present?
3. Who are your biggest suppliers on the neutral vend?
4. Please provide the name contact details for the person at the trust who deals with the neutral vend tenders.
5. How much business is being invoiced outside of the neutral vend?
6. Does your organisation use a Direct Engagement scheme? If so, who provides it and when does their contract expire?
7. What percentage of bookings are made outside of the DE model (non-DE)?
8. Do you outsource any of your psychiatric services to external companies?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

David Hill

Dear Southern Health Freedom of Information,

Thanks for coming back to me.

I refer to such services as out of hours junior or consultant cover, substance misuse services or anything similar. Sometimes Trusts outsource such services to external companies which save on costs and manpower by running it themselves.

Yours sincerely,

David Hill
