Our Request for Clarification:

Please can you clarify the following points:

 

·         Having reviewed your request for information, we estimate that
it would exceed the statutory cost limit of 18 hours in order to provide
all the information you require. This is because the information requested
is not centrally recorded and the various departments who may hold the
information would have to conduct searches to ascertain whether they hold
recorded information. If you could narrow the focus of your request to one
or two specific departments we could then proceed with processing your
request.

 

·         Please can you define specifically what you mean by “Clinical
Systems” as this term seems rather broad.

 

Please note:

Once we have received your clarification we will send an acknowledgment
and a date by which you should expect a response. The Trust is not
required to provide information where we have asked for clarification and
the ‘clock’ restarts when clarification has been received. If we do not
hear from you in 20 working days, i.e by 16/10/2019 we will close the
request and you will be advised to make a new request if you still require
the information.

 

Yours sincerely,
