Dear Mr/Ms Chowdhury
 
Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 24th August 2016.  Your request has been given
the Reference Number 2333. 
 
We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is 21st September 2016.   We will endeavour to
respond to you in advance of this date and we will contact you if we
envisage delays or if we need more information from you.
 
Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the public interest in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.
 
In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the appropriate “cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request, or we may charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  If you still wish to receive the information, you will
need to pay the fee before we proceed with your request. 
 
We will offer assistance and advise you if, by modifying your request, we
could provide you with some non-exempt or free of charge information.
 
Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.
 
With kind regards
