Good afternoon,

Firstly I apologise for the delay in responding to your queries, this is due to a major reshuffle within the department and FOI's were over looked.

I am now picking up with the backlog, however I can't find your original request, could you please resend?

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Good morning Mr Mountain,

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) – 2018-327

Firstly may I please apologise for the delay in responding, this was a misunderstanding within the team.

Following your request for information we received last year, Camden & Islington NHS Foundation Trust are pleased to respond as the attached excel sheet.

Can I also please clarify "What is your average total charge rate for a locum consultant doctor? Excl Agency VAT Incl Agency VAT"

This is per Shift.

We do hope you are satisfied with the way in which your response was handled, if not you may request an internal review at the above email address within 28 days of this letter. When contacting the Trust please use the above reference that is unique to your request.

If you remain unsatisfied with the outcome of the internal review, you may seek further recourse by lodging an appeal with the Information Commissioner’ Office at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF and on the Information Centre's website. www.ico.gov.uk/
