Dental SIFT Income and Allocation

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Cardiff and Vale University Health Board,

I would like to ask how much the trust receives in SIFT money for the training of dental undergraduate students. To further this I would be interested to know how this funding is allocated.

Yours faithfully,
Benjamin Jones

FOI Requests (Cardiff and Vale UHB - Information Governance), Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

Dear Mr Jones,


I am writing in response to your e-mail below requesting information from
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (the UHB) under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. In light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19)
pandemic facing the NHS, we will endeavour to respond to your request at
the first possible opportunity. However, please consider that during this
current climate, resources may be diverted away from usual compliance and
information governance work, resulting in understandable delays when
making information rights requests.


The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives individuals the right to access
official information. The Act allows the right to request any recorded
information held by a public authority, such as Cardiff and Vale UHB.  A
request can be made for any information it is thought a public authority
may hold. The right only covers recorded information which includes
information held on computers, in emails and in printed or handwritten
documents as well as images, video and audio recordings.  


A request can take the form of a question, rather than a request for
specific documents, but an authority does not have to answer your question
if this would mean creating new information or giving an opinion or
judgment that is not already recorded.


As you are making a request under the Freedom of Information Act the UHB
will consider your request in accordance with the Act and in line with the
appropriate guidance issued by the Information Commissioner as detailed


 The UHB will:


• identify which questions amount to requests for information held on


• be ready to offer advice and assistance that is reasonable in the
circumstances; and


• provide a response in line with the requirements of the legislation.  


I would now like to confirm that your request has been forwarded to the
relevant department to action. A further response will be issued in due


As your request is being dealt with under FoI, there is a deadline of 20
working days for response to be issued.


Yours sincerely,

Abigail Coultis
