Dear JJ Evans

Thank you for your request for information about the following:

‘Please provide copies of all email correspondence between the English
Infected Blood Support Scheme and DHSC regarding interim infected blood
compensation payments during the period 1st Aug 2022 - 20th Aug 2022.’

Your request was received on 22 August 2022, and I am dealing with it
under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Response

Please accept my sincerest apologies for the delay in this response.
Unfortunately, the review of the requested information took longer than we
would have liked, which resulted in the delay to this response. The NHSBSA
takes its responsibility to respond to FOI requests within the required
timescales seriously and unfortunately on this occasion we have not been
able to do so.

A copy of the information is attached.

Please be aware that I have decided not to release full details of all
staff as this information falls under the exemption in Section 40
subsections 2 and 3(A)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act. 

This is because it would breach the first data protection principle as:

a)  It is not fair to disclose these people’s personal details to the
world and is likely to cause damage or distress to staff.

b) These details are not of sufficient interest to the public to warrant
an intrusion into the privacy of those staff.
