Dear Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

As you can see, I have made several request for some information regarding Allied health professionals within your trust. However after three months I am still waiting for a response.
Please can you provide answers to my AHP requests, as a matter of urgency.
Due to the length of time this has been going on (three months) I believe 3 working days is more than adequate.
If I still have not received an answer after three working days i may have to look into the possibiltiy of requesting an internal review.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker
