Dear Mr/Ms Evans

 

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 14^th August 2020.  Your request has been
given the Reference Number ANHSFT REF  4932. 

 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is 11th September  2020.   We will try to respond
to you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage delays or
if we need more information from you.

 

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the “public interest” in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

 

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request or we can charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  In that case you would need to pay the fee before we
proceeded with your request,  but we will offer assistance and advise you
if, by modifying your request, we could provide you with some non-exempt
or free of charge information.

 

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

 

With kind regards

 

Deborah Cocker

Dear Mr/Ms Evans

 

Further to your application to access information under the Freedom of
Information Act (ANHSFT REF. 4932) please find our response below.  
Please accept my apologies for our late reply.

 

Airedale NHS Foundation Trust had one request for a Hep C look back on a
patient last year. The samples were from 1985 and 1990, both sample dates
were pre Hep C testing of national blood stocks which began in 1991.

 

Blood was cross-matched on both samples but there is no indication that
any blood was transfused from our records.  New guidance is that patients
who have had a blood transfusion must have their medical case notes stored
indefinitely.

 

We trust you find our response helpful.  If you feel we are not complying
with our publication scheme, you feel your request has not been properly
handled, or you are dissatisfied, you can write within 40 working days to
Brendan Brown, Chief Executive at the address below to request a review. 
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner under
section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 if you are dissatisfied
with the outcome of that review.

 

Unless identified as another party's copyright, you may use and re-use the
information we have provided (not including logos or photographs), free of
charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government
Licence which can be viewed via the link below.
