Dear Ms Innes

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 23^rd February 2022.  Your request has been
given the Reference Number ANHSFT REF  5622. 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is  23^rd March 2022.   We will try to respond to
you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage delays or if
we need more information from you.

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the “public interest” in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request or we can charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  In that case you would need to pay the fee before we
proceeded with your request,  but we will offer assistance and advise you
if, by modifying your request, we could provide you with some non-exempt
or free of charge information.

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

With kind regards

Deborah Cocker
