RE: Freedom of Information Request - FOI 1152

 

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you for your email requesting information held by Oxleas NHS
Foundation Trust regarding the financial spend on agency/temporary and
local psychiatrists by agency.

 

Please be aware the Trust is experiencing a high volume of requests at
this time and there are delays in processing the requests for which the
Trust apologises.

 

Before your request can begin to be processed, the Trust need to ensure
clarity in order to correctly identify whether the information you have
requested is held or not, and so that any information collated is accurate
in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I have
attached the Freedom of Information Act 2000 guidance for your
information.

 

Therefore, in order for your request to be processed in the best way
possible, could you please clarify the following points for each of
your questions:

 

1. The total spend on agency/temporary/locum Psychiatrists sorted by
supplying agency e.g.

Agency A £50,000
Agency B £10,000
Agency C £7,000
Total

 

For question 1, can you please confirm whether or not you wish to receive
information regarding the cost of psychiatrists employed by Oxleas NHS
Foundation Trust from external agencies only, or whether you wish to
include the cost of psychiatrists employed from the Trusts temporary
staffing bank.

 

2. The total number of agency/temporary/locum Psychiatrists used sorted by
supplying agency e.g.

Agency A 5
Agency B 10
Agency C 7
Total

 
For question 2, can you please confirm whether or not you wish to receive
information regarding psychiatrists employed by Oxleas NHS Foundation
Trust from external agencies only, or whether you wish to include
psychiatrists employed by from the Trusts temporary staffing bank.

For both of your questions can you please specify a time period for which
you wish to receive the information e.g. financial year 2012-2013

 

Your request will now be placed on hold until clarification regarding the
above points has been received. Once clarification has been provided your
request will begin to be processed.
 
Kind regards.

RE: Freedom of Information Request – FOI 1152

 

Dear Sir,

 

Further to my email below, I have today received confirmation from the
appropriate Directorate as to the information that is held/not held for
the purposes of your request.

 

I have been informed that the information for question 1 of your request
is held by the Trust. However, to collate the information requested in
question 2 would take the request over the cost threshold set out in
section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

As the Trust only holds only part of the information you are asking for,
can you please confirm whether or not you still wish to proceed with your
request to receive information for question 1.

 

Your request will now be placed on hold until confirmation from you is
received.

 

Kind regards
