Dear Mr Rob

 

Our Ref: CQC IAT 1819 0955

 

I write in response to your correspondence of 11 March 2019 in which you
made the following request:

 

“James Mullins, CQC Head of Inspection went on secondment to Birmingham
Women's and Children's Foundation Trust on, or around, December 2017.

 

Between December 2017 and February 2018, James Mullins e-mailed Kathryn
Mason, CQC Acting Head Of Inspection, at her CQC e-mail address,
requesting her to send internal CQC documents to him.

 

Kathryn Mason responded by e-mail to James Mullins, from her CQC e-mail
account, sending the requested documents and requesting his assistance
with a forthcoming interview.

 

Please provide both the e-mail from James Mullins to Kathryn Mason and the
e-mail from Kathryn Mason to James Mullins, sent and received at at some
time Dec 2017 - Feb 2018.

 

These e-mails concern the functions of CQC as a regulatory body and should
be stored on CQC's IT servers.”

 

 

Kathryn Mason has confirmed that the documents that were shared with James
Mullins during this period (December 2017 – February 2018) refer to blank
evidence table templates for interviews and focus groups. These documents
are freely available to Executive Reviewers and Specialist Advisors who
work with CQC from provider organisations. These documents are not
available on the intranet but are freely shared when requested to promote
improvement in services and across healthcare systems.

 

The email exchanges between Kathryn Mason and James Mullins during
December 2017 and February 2018 are no longer available and have been
deleted as this was over 12 months ago. They were not saved as they were
not business related nor pertaining to a provider or location. This is in
line with CQC policy.

 

 

CQC will always endeavour to provide high quality responses to requests
for information and seek to be as helpful as possible. We would therefore
appreciate if you can take some time to complete our online feedback form
