Hi Katie ,

My FOI request relating to group B Strep guidelines, patient information materials, and rates of neonatal infection has, by my reckoning, been delayed beyond the 20 working day timescale set out by the FOIA and ICO.

I would be very grateful if you could let me know on what date I will be receiving your reply please?

Yours sincerely,

Oliver Plumb
