FOI BHT - Berkshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Further to your Freedom of information request.

Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is committed to the Freedom of Information Act 2000. However, the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic at the current time. Understandably, our resources have been diverted to support our front-line colleagues who are working tremendously hard to provide care for our patients, and to those in need of our services.

We strive to be transparent and to work with an open culture. But at this time, whilst care of our patients and the safety of our staff takes precedence, it is likely that responses to some requests for information may be delayed. The Information Commissioners Office also recognises the current situation in the NHS and within a recent decision notice the Commissioner wished “to place on record her understanding of the immense pressures placed on public authorities during the coronavirus pandemic. She is sympathetic to the difficult decisions such authorities must make, between prioritising front-line services and continuing to meet their obligations under the FOIA. The Commissioner has made it clear that she will allow flexibility where this is required by public authorities in order to respond to the pandemic”.

Therefore, we would ask you to consider withdrawing your request and submitting it at a future date so our services can concentrate on pandemic planning and recovery.

Please advise if you would be willing to withdraw this FOI request; this would be greatly appreciated at this time.

Kind regards

Tina Kellow
Freedom of Information Officer/Executive Assistant
