Dear Buzz

Freedom of Information Request (FOI 91 - 2122)

Thank you for your request dated 18th May 2021. I can confirm that your request is being processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is committed to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and we strive to be transparent and work with an open culture. However, following from the recent pandemic, our resources were diverted to support our front-line colleagues to provide care for our patients, and those in need of our services. Understandably, this has caused a backlog of requests and some delay with responses to Freedom of Information requests.

Whilst we will endeavour to send a written response within 20 working days from receipt of your request, due to the situation there may be some residual delays when responding. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your understanding in this matter.

The ICO have recognised the current situation in the NHS as outlined in their statement here:

Thank you for your understanding

Kind Regards
