Dear David Stretch

I am writing to acknowledge receipt of your email dated 8th February 2022 requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) regarding Lighting, Electricity & On-site Power Generation.

Your reference number is 567-2122 please quote this number on any correspondence.

The University Hospitals of North Midlands Trust is committed to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

However, the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic at the current time. Understandably, our resources have been diverted to support our front-line colleagues who are working tremendously hard to provide care for our patients, and to those in need of our services.

We strive to be transparent and to work with an open culture. But at this time, whilst care of our patients and the safety of our staff takes precedent, it is likely that responses to some requests for information will be delayed. We apologise for this position in advance, and will endeavour to provide you with as much information as we can, as soon as we are able.

The Information Commissioners Office has recognised the current situation in the NHS.

The FOI Act sets out a twenty working day timescale for requests to be completed by. We will always try to complete your request within this timeframe. We will let you know whether the Trust holds the information you have requested, and we will contact you as soon as possible if we are delayed in our response for some reason. If we require further information from you or we need you to further explain your request before we can continue to process it we will also contact you.

Please note:
· The Freedom of Information Act does not provide access to personal records. This sits within Access to Medical Records. They can be contacted via Ministries Office [email address]
· If we request any clarification from you to help us respond to your request, the 20 working day deadline freezes until the requested clarification has been received.
· If we suspect that the request has come from a Pseudonym (false name) we will request proof of identity before processing your request, as provision of a Pseudonym invalidates a request.

The authority can combine related requests received within a period of 60 consecutive days from:
(section 12 exemption)

• The same person or
• People who appear to be acting in concert or in pursuance of a campaign.
