Dear Mya


As you will be aware, as a result of COVID-19, the NHS has returned to the
highest alert level.  The Trust has been directed to administer the
COVID-19 immunisation programme and ensure that patient facing staff are
tested twice weekly.  As such, our resources are being diverted away from
the usual compliance and information rights work to the effective long
term management of the virus in line with the Government’s request. 
Whilst we recognise that statutory timescales cannot be extended, we
apologise that there is likely to be a significant delay in responding to
your request for information during this extraordinary period.

We will log your request at this time and review the situation as the
pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic reduce to enable us to return to
responding within the statutory timeline.


Many thanks
