Johnson Ian,

Dear Johnson A,

I am sorry but NHS Norfolk has no record of having received such a
Freedom of Information request. However, since NHS Norfolk is part of
the National Health Service and your request for information refers to
Local Councils, perhaps your questions should be directed to Norfolk
County Council. Their Freedom of Information details can be accessed
here:

I hope this is helpful,

Please accept our apologies for this - a email reply from NHS Norfolk was incorrectly attributed to your request which you then subsequently replied to.

If you need to chase up your request, please do this by clicking on the "Send follow-up" link on your original request to them, and not Thanet's automated reply as the email address this is sent from doesn't appear to accept replies.

Thanks
