Dear Devon Primary Care Trust (PCT),

Please can you provide me with the names & email addresses of all Practice Managers in your area.

I appreciate that the names maybe available online via NHS Choices however the email addresses are not but would be acceptable via NHS Mail. I cannot communicate via the telephone nor can I face to face.

I do not plan to use this information for distribution purposes & would happily accept the information via the post/email or online.

Yours faithfully,

Justin Goodchild

Dear devoncommissioners foi (PLYMOUTH TEACHING PCT),

Please note I cannot communicate by any other means other than email, I cannot call by telephone or face to face so email is my only option therefore I ask that you reconsider your response.

Whilst GP's are in theory self employed they are still governed by yourselves.

Yours sincerely,

Justin Goodchild

Dear Devon Primary Care Trust (PCT),

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Devon Primary Care Trust (PCT)'s handling of my FOI request 'GP Practice Managers Contact Info'.

The spreadsheet does not provide access to retrieve the emails required, they are simply website addresses. NHS Mail has a directory which will detail all the email addresses required. Please use NHS Mail to retrieve the addresses which is something I cannot do & something that is not available on the public domain.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Justin Goodchild

As with many such requests, the reply is rarely accurate or complete. Giving surgery website addresses does not facilitate email contact with the surgeries. If one can access the practice manager's name then a combination of their first name and last, or initial and last name, plus 'nhs.net sometimes bears fruit. At times the @ will be followed by the name of the PCT. Following is one example of possibilities:
Practice Manager's name: 'Anne Smith working in Homeshire PCT'
possible email addresses:
Anne.smith@nhs.net or Anne.smith@homeshirepct.nhs.net
A.smith@nhs.net or A.smith@homeshirepct.nhs.net
asmith@nhs.net or asmith@homeshirepct.nhs.net
With common names a number might follow the name.
No guarantees but in view of the reluctance of PCT to release email addresses this is the only way I have found to contact practice managers.
