Dear NHS Merton Clinical Commissioning Group,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of NHS Merton Clinical Commissioning Group's handling of my FOI request 'Patients registered at GP surgeries in Merton'.

The CCG provided information for one surgery (The Wilson Health Centre GP Practice) for dates close to those I specified for two of the three dates, and on the precise date in the third instance in what it called the 'spirit of transparency'.

It is surprising that if this information is held for one surgery that it is not held for the others.

If it is held for the others on dates close to those I specified, it is surprising that the CCG felt unable to share the information in the same 'spirit of transparency' it applied to information about the Wilson Health Centre GP Practice, i.e. for dates close to those I requested.

I would ask the CCG, therefore, to look again at the request and adopt that spirit of transparency in its response, providing the number of patients registered at the surgeries I listed on dates close to those in my request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

Yours faithfully,

Sandra Vogel
