Dear Mr Knight

 

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 6^th December 2019.  Your request has been
given the Reference Number ANHST REF  4617. 

 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is   8^th January 2019.   We will try to respond
to you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage delays or
if we need more information from you.

 

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the “public interest” in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

 

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request or we can charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  In that case you would need to pay the fee before we
proceeded with your request,  but we will offer assistance and advise you
if, by modifying your request, we could provide you with some non-exempt
or free of charge information.

 

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

 

With kind regards

 

Kevin Denham

Dear Mr Knight

 

Further to your application to access information under the Freedom of
Information Act (ANHST REF. 4617) please find our response below.  

 

1) Please can you send me a copy of the current subject access request
cover letter that you use – See form and covering guidance attached

2) A copy of the last 5 DPIAS completed – Attached.  Some information that
was particularly detailed about how to use the software to access and
use/amend patient choices has been redacted.  Staff names have also been
redacted. This information has been redacted under S31(1)(a) of the FOI
Act (prevention or detection of crime).  This is because the Trust must
not inadvertently release information that would facilitate unauthorised
access to view or amend the health records of its patients.

3) A copy of any internal mandatory information governance training that
you give to staff which was written in the last 2 years including
presentation slides and videos and any other media – Attached mandatory IG
Training workbook and assessment

4) A copy of any instructions given to staff members to reduce data
security breaches, for example double checking work which was written in
the last 5 years – Information Governance Policy attached.  This policy
has been updated and the new version is currently progressing through our
ratification procedure.

5) A list of any policies implemented in the last 2 years within the
organisation to help reduce the environmental impact that the organisation
has?. – We have a sustainability policy in draft format, we have also been
developing our sustainability development plan. The other policy with a
focus on sustainability that was renewed this year is our waste policy.

 

We trust you find our response helpful.  If you feel we are not complying
with our publication scheme, you feel your request has not been properly
handled, or you are dissatisfied, you can write within 40 working days to
Brendan Brown, Chief Executive at the address below to request a review. 
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner under
section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 if you are dissatisfied
