It appears the SEHSCT has some difficulty in answering simple questions regarding autism, questions which are readily and easily answered by other Trusts (I note your other FOI's to other trusts which have had prompt responses).

Dear FOI Request,

The other Trusts have answered. No answer as yet...

Yours sincerely,

Julie McKeown

Dear FOI Team SEHSCT
Your last response regarding this FOI was almost a month ago.

Please advise when you will answer this simple FOI.

Please advise why your inability to answer this simple FOI is in stark contrast to other Trusts who have answered.
