Figures regarding requests for information held on non-corporate communication channels

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

I would like to know how many Freedom of Information requests to the department have required staff to search non-corporate communication channels.

In the last 12 months.

1) How many freedom of information requests have explicitly asked for information held on non-corporate communication channels?

2) How many requests have been fulfilled, in whole or in part, by information held on non-corporate communication channels?

3) How long do staff take to search for information held on non-corporate communication channels for an individual FOI request?

4) As a proportion of requests, how many are for information held on non-corporate communication channels vs corporate communication channels.

5) How do staff search for information held on non-corporate channels, is it structured in any meaningful manner?

Yours faithfully,

George Simpson
