Dear Harmoni HS Ltd,

I am interested in the amount of money spent by the PCT on LOCUM practitioners in hospitals.
I would like to know:

1) How much is spent (broken down by hospital if possible) on locum staff.
2) The comparison of the overall figure to last year.
3) How Locum practitioners are budgeted for.
4) Where the money comes from.
4) All of the specific details listed above for the Fryatt Hospital in Harwich.

I have been informed by the NEEPCT that you provide these services and would thus hold their details.

Yours faithfully,

James Cox

Please can you pass this message onto James -
[FOI #55212 email] as we have had our email
bounce back.

Hi James,

Thank you for your enquiry. Harmoni is not a public authority and
is not therefore required to respond to requests made under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Please could we suggest that you
forward your request on to Penny Lansdown, Head of Primary Care
Commissioning at NHS North East Essex, instead? We have already
forwarded on your email to her so she will be expecting to hear
from you. Thank you again for your email, and please don't hesitate
to contact us again if you have any further questions or concerns.

On Behalf of Harmoni HS

The above message was received by the WhatDoTheyKnow team -- we arranged to forward it on to the request. We will also try to work out why it failed to get through in the first place.
