Dear West London NHS Trust,

 

In the last 10 years, on how many occasions has the Trust commissioned
external investigators such as Senatus Consulting etc? What has been the
overall cost of such external investigations in the last 10 years?

 

Response: We do not have comprehensive records that go back over the last
ten years. Over the last three years, we have used external consultancy on
three separate occasions and have incurred a total cost of £24,480 over
that period of time.

 

Yours faithfully,
