Dear Sirs

Thank you for your e-mail dated 11 November 2009 requesting a copy of a current Pest Control Contract that we may have, the value of any Pest Control Contract we may have and also when this contract is due for renewal.

The information we can disclose is below.

I can confirm that the Pest Control Contract we have essentially covers pest prevention services in connection with the provision and maintenance of rodent bait boxes and non winged insects. This covers 74 East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust Sites, which are all inspected monthly. The cost of this contract is £29,694.00 but is not up for renewal until 2013.

The remainder of the information that you requested (an actual copy of the contract) is exempt under Section 12(11) of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and is therefore withheld.

The reason this is withheld is because the specific contract you require sight of is part of a bigger overall contract that this Trust has, and it is not possible to separate this away from the remaining elements of the overall contract that you did not ask for within your original request.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to:

Matthew Williams, Records Manager, Information Governance and Compliance Team, East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Trust Headquarters, 1 Horizon Place, Mellors Way, Nottingham Business Park, Nottingham NG8 6PY.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

If you have any queries about this request, do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

Matthew Williams
