Dear Charlotte,

thank you for your reply dated the 22nd June, in which you advised
me that the details of the bonus payments to Directors was
available in the 2008/9 Annual Report and Accounts.

I have had another look at the report and could not find the
remuneration details broken down between salary and bonus payment
in the renumeration report, it was one total figure only.

Could you therefore give me the information from the original
request or indicate the page in the Annual report where this
information is given.

Yours sincerely,

Gerry Hallright

5 December 2010

Dear Gwenneth McConnell,

thank you for your helpful reply.
I would be grateful if you can consider the additional questions
below:

1) Does the Trust have a Gifts, Hospitality and Sponsorship Policy
or similar which reflects the NHS Guidance “COMMERCIAL SPONSORSHIP
– ETHICAL STANDARDS FOR THE NHS, Nov 2000” and if so, please send
me a copy.
If the Trust guidance is instead within the Trust SFIs/SOs, please
send me a copy of these.

2) Please supply a copy of the Trust 2008/9 and 2009/10
Hospitality, Sponsorship and Gifts registers.
Please consider excluding names of individuals, but including
Directors titles or names and
including names of companies supplying Sponsorship.
Supplying company names enables scrutiny of the frequency and value
of multiple sponsorship.

3) Does the Trust include details of sponsorship in the Hospitality
register by pharmaceutical companies
or other medical supplies companies for attendance at events such
as medical conferences?
If not, is there somewhere else where this information is held?

Yours sincerely,

Gerry Hallright

Dear Mr Smith,

thank you for your reply dated the 27th January and your offer to
clarify my below request.

To keep track of FOIs I find that I need to keep communication in
writing to avoid any later confusion.

My original request had asked for payments, which are generally
held on the central accounting system I believe. The register you
refer to I assume is generally the contracts register.

I would be grateful if you can review my original request,

Yours sincerely,

Gerry Hallright
