Dear Department of Health,
re my FOI request re 'Which medications are used as depot injections in prisons and hospitals.
As you will note from your records a response as obliged by law is now long overdue.
I had an acknowledgement of receipt only after I had followed up the lack of response as required by law withing 28days. The FOI request was then passed on to the relvant department for response.
I have still not had a response.

Can you please let me know why there has been no reposnse as required by law. I would also request an internal investigation be carried out in order to give me an explanation.
I look forward to your much delayed response as soon as possible now.

Regards

susanne stevens

Dear Department of Health,
I sent another e mail today and received a quick response today. Please let me know why it has taken so long - much outside the legal requirement for a response to be given for a FOI
As you state you do not hold the information - please let me know which organisation does hold the information requested as it would be surprising if the DoH does not know which drugs are used .

Yours faithfully,
