Dear Mr Mountain,

 

FOI Ref: 1694-18 (*Please quote this reference number on all
correspondence)

 

I am contacting you further to your email of 11 September 2018, and would
like to start by offering my apologies for the unacceptable delay in
responding to your FOI request. 

 

Unfortunately, following a recent audit, it has been noted that some FOI
requests have experienced unnecessary delays owing to changes in staffing
levels within the Trust’s Information Governance department.  However,
please be assured that staff have since been reminded that such errors are
unacceptable, and highlighted the importance in ensuring that such issues
do not reoccur. 

 

In this instance, owing to the time that has elapsed since receiving your
original email, it is unclear if you would still wish the Trust to process
your request under FOI.  Should you wish for this to be processed and
responded to, please do not hesitate in responding to this email at the
earliest opportunity, and we will of course make every effort in ensuring
that your request is expedited.

 

Please note that should we receive no response by 18 April 2019, it will
be assumed that you no longer require the information previously
requested, and your request will be formally closed.

 

I hope this information helps,

 

FOI Team

London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust
