Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Scottish Ambulance Service's handling of my FOI request 'Minutes of BASICS Scotland SAS National Group Meetings 2017'.

You state in your response that the minutes I requested are created and held by BASICS Scotland. BASICS Scotland is a registered charity and is therefore not subject to the Freedom of Information Act, meaning they are not required to provide copies of the minutes.

As the minutes relate to the provision of health services to patients of the Scottish Ambulance Service by a third party responder, it surely cannot be the case that the SAS does not hold copies of the minutes.

Please provide the copies that you hold.

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

Yours faithfully,

Dr Robert S. Coull

Good afternoon Dr Coull,

You asked for a review to be undertaken into the above FOI request and I have now completed my review into the handling of this request from the Scottish Ambulance Service.

I understand that you have a separate request in with the Information Commissioner related to our failure to respond to your request for a review. This is being dealt with separately so my response today is solely related to your request for a review into the information we provided to you concerning minutes of meetings between BASICS and the Scottish Ambulance Service.

I have investigated this and our handling of the request and have concluded that we handled the request appropriately. We do not hold copies of minutes of meetings between BASICS and the Scottish Ambulance Service.

As previously discussed, these minutes are the responsibility of BASICS.

All minutes are published by BASICS on their members site at https://basics-scotland.org.uk/members/ and I understand that you, as a member of Basics, have full access to these minutes. I hope this is helpful in signposting you to where you can find the information you are looking for.

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Thanks,
Mark
