“Dear NHS Jobs,

the following information.

 

I'd like to know the following

 

1. how much has been spend on mobile app development over the last 3 years

NHS England may hold information relevant to your request.  However, we
are unable to begin processing your request without further clarification.

 

Under Section 1(3) of the FOI Act, an authority is not obliged to comply
with an FOI request when it reasonably requires further information in
order to identify and locate the information requested.

 

It may help if we explain that the NHS in England is not a single
organisation but is made up of a range of organisations such as Hospitals,
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Ambulance Trusts. NHS England is
responsible for commissioning primary care services such as GP and dental
surgeries, as well as some specialised secondary care services. Therefore,
any recorded information NHS England may be able to provide in response to
an FOI request will generally relate to the services NHS England
commissions. For information on commissioned services and the types of
information NHS England holds can be found on our [1]website and
[2]publication scheme. For further information on the NHS, its structure
and other NHS organisations please refer to NHS Choices [3]here.

 

The NHS Jobs Service is provided by the Department of Health. As such, NHS
England is not able to provide information on their behalf. We would be
grateful if you could clarify whether your request is intended for the
Department of Health, or if your questions are directed at NHS England.
