We are treating your request under our procedures for responding to
requests for information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002.

 

I can confirm that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) holds the
information as described by you.

 

I have to advise you that these invoices relate to a jointly funded
placement (NHSGGC and Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership
(HSCP)) for a patient within a specialised residential facility.  We are
not aware of a contract for this service but the placement was made in
2005, therefore, under Section 17 of the FOlSA, I am required to tell you
that NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde does not hold the information which you
are seeking in regard to a contract.

 

I attach a copy of both invoices at Icons 1 above in which we have
redacted information to ensure the patient is not identifiable.  It is our
view that this constitutes personal data and should be not released into
the public domain.   Under Section 38(1)(b) and Section 38(2)(a)(i) we
therefore decline to disclose this information as to release it would
contravene one or more of the data protection principles.  The exemptions
contained in these sections are regarded as absolute exemptions, and under
the Act we are therefore not required to go on to consider whether it
would be in the public interest to release this information.

 

I hope this information is helpful.  If you are not satisfied with our
response to your request, you have a right to request a review of this
decision within 40 working days of receiving this response.  The procedure
for consideration of a review is detailed in the attached note.  The note
also describes your right to pursue the matter with the Scottish
Information Commissioner if, following a request for review, you remain
dissatisfied with the decision of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  If
following appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner you still remain
dissatisfied with the outcome, you have a right of appeal to the Court of
Session on a point of law against the decision of the Scottish Information
Commissioner.

 

If you wish us to review this decision, please complete the form enclosed
and return it to the Head of Administration, NHS Greater Glasgow and
Clyde, Corporate HQ, J B Russell House, Gartnavel Royal Hospital, 1055
Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 0XH.
