Dear Requester,

 

With reference to the above FOI request received by us on 25 September
2020, we require some clarity from you to enable us to finalise our
response.

 

In your request you have asked for a weekly breakdown of figures for
2020.  Kindly note that in order to adhere to best practice in maintaining
confidentiality, this Trust does not publish numbers lower than 5 as this
could lead to an identity being revealed. Exemption – Section 40(2) of the
Freedom of Information Act would be applied as to disclose the information
requested would be in breach of the Data Protection Act (2018). By
applying this exemption to the data you have requested, this does mean
that there would be very little data provided to you for the weekly
figures requested.  Could you therefore please clarify whether you still
require the data in this form?

 

Your request will be placed on hold until such time as we hear from you. 
If we do not hear from you within 2 calendar months, we will assume the
information is no longer required and your request will be cancelled

 

Kind regards,
