Dear CCG FOI,

Thank you for the information you have supplied. In addition to it, I request:

You suggest who would be available to provide the answers to my questions relating to a time prior to your taking over the area.

You explain why you are unable to provide GP to patient ratio statistics. Surely you know how many GPs there are within your commissioning area and, also, surely you know how many patients there are registered in that area. It seems it would not be difficult with the information at your disposal to provide the GP to patient ratio. Other CCGs have provided this without a problem.

Yours sincerely,

Liam Ward
