Dear FOI Team (NHS NEL CSU),

Thanks for responding. Can I check what your letter is saying - are you saying that you could respond to my request if I resubmitted it without question 3?

Best wishes
George

Dear Dr Julian

I can confirm that NHS Sutton CCG will be able to provide a response to questions 1 and 2.

In regards to questions number 3, the CCG will not be able to respond in the 18 hours timescale due to the process of gaining the same information and clarifying with the same with the coroners.
