Dear Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Ketamine Clinical Trial'.

I asked the following main question:

Can you confirm if your organisation is participating in a Clinical Trial for Ketamine for Treatment-Resistant Depression Cohort in Europe

Your reply was - "No, we are not currently participating in any clinical trial for Ketamine."

"We would advise that we have checked our records and can confirm that the Trust is not currently
participating in any Ketamine trial."

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/k...

I attended the Southern Health Board meeting yesterday at Lymington Hospital.

Page 49 of the Board minutes under research said this

Research and Development
Commercial Clinical Trials overview

d) Treatment Resistant Depression Cohort in Europe (TRD). Southern Health is the
highest recruiting site in the UK.

Can you explain why you have provided incorrect and misleading information.

Regards

Richard West
