Dear Local Care Direct,

How many doctors do you provide for face to face service provision in the bradford ccg areas during weekday evenings and at weekends?

Do you allow your doctors to work nightshifts for you and then work day shifts the following day in gp practices? What checks are you making to ensure this is not happening in the interests of patient safety?

Do you check to ensure that your doctors carry adequate indemnity cover for the sessions they work for your organisation?

What are your clinical governance arrangements?

who is the medical director for your organisation?

What rates of pay do you make to your doctors?

Why do you have a £ multimillion contingency fund? which contingency is this for?

Who are the directors for your organisation?

Yours faithfully,

Gillian Lansley

Dear Gillian
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you on this issue. I have been informed by our SIRO and Information Governance Group that as a company Local Care Direct is not a public body as defined under the Freedom of Information Act and as such all requests under FOI should be made to the relevant commissioning body, in this case the Bradford Clinical Commissioning group and possibly the lead commissioner for the West Yorkshire Urgent Care Contract Greater Huddersfield CCG.
Please do get back to me if you have difficulties in contacting the relevant parties.
Kind regards
Alison
