Driver Training Advisory Group

O Davies made this Freedom of Information request to South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust,

Could you please release the following information to me, under the Freedom of Information Act, in relation to the action of your staff as part of the Driver Training Advisory Group between trusts.

This is information held by your staff, and there is a strong public interest in its release.

I would take this opportunity to remind you of the applicant blind and purpose blind nature of FOI, and that withholding information will be reported to the ICO.

Some of this information does relate to dealings with a commercial organisation, but the request does not request any sensitive data, and if that data would inadvertently be released you are able to redact the sensitive word or phrase.

In relation to all these requests, I am requesting:
- emails (internal and external)
- notes, memoranda, and documents
- handwritten notes of your staff

The information requested is:
1. All information relating to the selection of Future Quals as the provider of driver training course accreditation/awards for NHS Trusts
2. The nature of any and all exclusivity arrangements (implicit or explicit) by which Future Quals are not able to offer this qualification to non-NHS providers
3. The advisory role played by any of your staff in development of the Future Quals award
4. Any agreement or promise of your (or any other) trust to use Future Quals ambulance driving awards.
5. Any materials relating to efforts to try and prevent other awarding bodies from running qualifications in this area
6. Any communication with other public bodies, ALMOs, or representative bodies, about the development, awarding, or running of this qualification (including high speed working group, ACPO etc.)

Yours faithfully,

O Davies
