Dear Mr Hudson

 

You will notice that I have now issued my response to your request. Please
note that your request was made on Saturday 27 February 2016, i.e. a
non-working day. Therefore your request was treated as having been
received on Monday 29 February 2016, i.e. the first working day following
your request. Therefore it is my opinion that the NHSBSA has not breached
the Freedom of Information Act in handling your request. If you wish to
challenge this, you are welcome to request an internal review. The details
of how to do so are outlined in my response.

 

Regards
