FOI REQUESTS, Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Ms Nuttall

Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) – Outcome of Internal Review – FOI 4433

Thank you for your Internal Review request dated 29th January 2018 regarding Freedom of Information request reference number 4433 in which you asked:

Original Request
- The name of your Head of Dermatology
- Dermatology Tel No.
- Dermatology Email

In addition if you have a melanoma unit please provide the following detail:

- Do you have a melanoma unit? Y/N
- If yes, the name of your Head of Melanoma
- Melanoma Tel No
- Melanoma Email
- Melanoma Nurse
- Clinical Trials
- Do you offer Sentinel Node Biopsy?
- Is CT available on site?

The purpose of an Internal Review is to assess how your Freedom of Information request was handled in the first instance and to determine whether the original decision given to you was correct.

This is an independent review: I was not involved in the original decision.

Having undertaken the research independently and after careful consideration I have concluded that the initial response, requesting clarity that was sent to you was compliant with the requirements of the FOIA.
An explanation of my decision follows:

Clarity was requested within the statutory timeframe of 20 days.

The internal review noted that the Trust received the original request on 18th December 2017 and also responded on 18th December 2017 requesting clarity regarding one of your questions.

In particular, we asked for your definition of “a centre of excellence”.

You were advised you that your request will be placed on hold and we will not be able to proceed further until we receive your response and if we did not hear from you within 30 working days from 18th December 2017 we will close the request. If the request was closed you would be required to submit a new request if you still required the information.

The calculation of 30 working days entitled you to respond until 1st February 2018.
We received your request for an internal review via email dated 29th January 2018, however I note that you have still not provided the Trust with your definition of “a centre of excellence”.

I have read your original request and I have provided the answers to your questions making the assumption that you mean “do we have a specific centre of excellence for Melanoma”.
As we do not have a Melanoma Unit I have concluded that the second part of your request is not applicable to this Trust.

I do apologise if I have made an incorrect assumption, if this is the case, please can you provide me with the clarity that was originally requested and I shall endeavour to provide you with a specific response as applicable.

Your FOI request and the Trusts response is set out below:

The name of your Head of Dermatology
Aintree University NHS Foundation Trust does not have a specific role of Head of Dermatology.
However the Clinical Director for Dermatology is Dr Arun Bharati.

Dermatology Tel No. - We do not have a generic telephone number in order to specifically contact the Dermatology Department. However you can telephone switchboard on 0151 529 5980 and request to be transferred onto the relevant person or department.

Dermatology Email – We do not have a generic email address in order to specifically contact the Dermatology Department. However you can email [email address] requesting your email to be passed on to the relevant person or department.

You can also write to the Trust at Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Longmoor Lane, Liverpool L9 7AL

In addition if you have a melanoma unit please provide the following detail:

Do you have a melanoma unit?
Aintree University NHS Foundation Trust does not have a Melanoma Unit.
- If yes, the name of your Head of Melanoma – N/A
- Melanoma Tel No – N/A
- Melanoma Email – N/A
- Melanoma Nurse – N/A
- Clinical Trials – N/A
- Do you have a centre of excellence? – N/A
- Do you offer Sentinel Node Biopsy? – N/A
- Is CT available on site? – N/A

If you remain dissatisfied after our internal review decision, you have the right to apply to the Information Commissioner’s Office. The Commissioner is an independent regulator who has the power to direct us to respond to your request differently, if she considers that we have handled it incorrectly.

You can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office at the following address:
