I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
I would like to receive information regarding spending and patient numbers for the Nightingale hospital that this health trust manages.
Specifically I would like to know:
1) How much was spent with consultancy firms (such as KPMG, Deloitte or any other consultancy firm) for work on the Nightingale hospital. Please break down the data by firm and spend, i.e. KMPG: £1million, Deloitte: £1million, etc
2) Please provide a brief description of the work these consultancy firms carried out on the Nightingale hospital.
3) Please provide patient numbers for the Nightingale hospital from its date of opening to October 2, 2020.
4) What is the current status of the Nightingale hospital? Is it still available for the health trust to use to treat patients, is it mothballed, has it been closed down, or another status?
If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act you are required to advise and assist requesters. If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.
I understand that you are required to respond to my request within the 20 working days after you receive this letter. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.
Dear North Bristol NHS Trust,
Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.
I am writing to request an internal review of North Bristol NHS Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Nightingale hospital: Patient numbers and spend with consultants'.
I'm requesting this review as I have not received a response to the request or even acknowledgment of its receipt. It is now significantly past the 20 day statutory time limit for responding, which was on 30/10/2020.
I appreciate this is a busy time for the NHS. But I would be grateful to receive a response to this FOI as soon as possible.
