Dear Avon Local Councils Association,

I was wondering if I could please request details of payments made to pharmacies for locally commissioned NHS services, for example smoking cessation, emergency hormonal contraception, supervised consumption of medicines, & needle exchange services.

If you could kindly provide this in spreadsheet(s) format, with a breakdown by pharmacy (name and address), month, service, and payment, I would greatly appreciate it (if you also have the ODS code identifier for the pharmacy, then please kindly include this also). If possible, details of the most recent 12 months worth of payments.

Yours faithfully,

oliver staunton

Deborah White,

Hello Oliver
I am afraid you are asking the wrong organisation. We are not a public
body accountable under the Freedom of Information Act and we have
absolutely nothing to do with NHS purchasing.

Dear Deborah White,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Just to mention: your organisation is listed at whatdotheyknow.com which encourages members of the public to make FOI requests, and this email address is the one listed for FOI emails.

Yours sincerely,

Deborah White,

Hello Mr Saunton
It also says-

Avon Local Councils Association

[1]An association of public authorities, also called ALCA

ALCA (Avon Local Councils Association) is a member organisation run by and
for Councils and Parish Meetings within the Unitary areas of Bath and
North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

It is probably not formally subject to FOI; but as it is an association of
public bodies we list it on WhatDoTheyKnow
