Dear Ms Minogue,

 

Thank you for your FOI request sent on 13^th August 2019. You asked:

 

 

Please provide the total agency spend of your Trust, for the last
financial year, and the total hours supplied by temporary agency staff to
your Trust, for the following staffing categories:

 

Staffing Provision                                       Total Hours FY
(2018/19)     Total Yearly Spend (2018/19)

General Nursing                        

Theatres (Nursing)                    

Healthcare Assistants               

RMNs (where Applicable)                      

Doctors (All Specialisms)                     

AHP/HSS                     

Non-Medical Non-Clinical                      

Emergency Nurse Practitioner/

Advanced Nurse Practitioner                 

 

Please can you ensure that responses are replied to in line with the
governance of freedom of information requests.

 

 

Under Section 1(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I can
confirm the Trust holds information that falls within the definition of
your request. Furthermore I can confirm under Section 21 of the Act that
this information is reasonably available to you by other means as it is
published via our Publication Scheme. Specifically, our FOI responses
page,
[1]https://www.sath.nhs.uk/about-us/freedom...
these publications give all agency spend, as they are reported. Please
note that we would not provide annual spend alongside hours worked as this
could calculate the hourly wage commissioned by the Trust to agency staff.
This would breach both section 41, ‘Data Protection’ of the Act and
section 43, ‘Commercial Sensitivity’ as these rates would have been agreed
within the contract between the Trust and the Agency.

 

Please also find attached a briefing which explains your rights to request
a review by the Trust or to complain to the Information Commissioner’s
Office if you are not satisfied with the response from the Trust, and an
outline of the Trust’s policy on the Reuse of Public Sector Information.

 

If you have any queries regarding this email, please contact the Freedom
of Information Officer via [2][The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust request email] and quote the reference
number above in any future correspondence. If you would like to give
feedback please visit [3]https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DXTP8QQ for our
