Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department of Health and Social Care's handling of my FOI request 'GP services in South East England'.

No, both NHS England and NHS Digital claim they don't hold the relevant data. It seems entirely incredulous that the Department of Health has no access to such vital information pertaining to the performance and coverage of GP services from as recently as 2010.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/g...

Yours faithfully,

Liam Ward
