Dear Ms Lea,
Thank you for your email of 13^th October requesting information from the
University of Liverpool. Colleagues have provided the information you

employees who have (certification or have attended) mental health first
The University does not hold central records of mental health training.
To extract this information, we would need to request, extract and compare
all records from all academic and professional services departments and
collate the figures manually. Section 12 makes provision for the
University to refuse requests for information where the cost of dealing
with them would exceed the appropriate limit, which is currently set at
£450 for universities. This represents the estimated cost of one person
spending over 18 hours in determining which departments might hold the
information and then locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
I would like to also kindly ask for the total number of students attending
your university at the moment.
28,025 (excluding online or overseas campus students)
