Dear Mr Furness

 

Thank you for your email requesting information below.

 

I understand that you are requesting the information from the East London
Health and Care Partnership. However the Partnership is not a public
authority, so is therefore not subject to the FOI Act (‘the Act’) and
cannot receive FOI requests. Instead, the partnership is made up of a
group of healthcare organisations. You would need to make your request to
the membership organisations directly, as they are statutory organisations
and comply with the Act.

 

You can find a list of these organisations on the following link:

I hope this helps, apologies that we can’t be of more assistance.

 

Kind regards,
