Dear FOI (NHS IMPROVEMENT - T1520),

This response seems somewhat unhelpful and contrary to the nature of FOI?

The links that appeared to be embedded in your response did not work for me.

If you are saying that NHS Improvement cannot extract meaningful information from their databases , then this seems a little concerning ?

If there is a better way of phrasing my questions in relation to the data sets that are held , I would be happy to take advice.

Please could you re-consider the nature of your previous response and provide the information held as requested.

Yours sincerely,

Darren Watts

Dear FOI (NHS IMPROVEMENT - T1520),

In your initial response to my request , you directed me to look at your generic database. The links in your response did not work.

If I had been able to answer the request by looking at the generic database , I would NOT have submitted a FOI request !

Please could you answer the original questions , even if the answer is 'nothing is held'

Yours sincerely,

Darren Watts
