Practices uploading to the Summary Care Record - November

Dr Neil Bhatia made this Freedom of Information request to Enfield Primary Care Trust (PCT)

The request was successful.

From: Dr Neil Bhatia

29 October 2010

Dear Enfield Primary Care Trust (PCT),

Thank you very much for all your previous FOI responses.

I would like to make further requests under the FOI Act regarding
the Summary Care Record rollout within your PCT.

For the purposes of the Act, please take the date of your receipt
of this request as Monday 1st November 2010.

• Please could you kindly state the total number of GP practices
within your PCT that are uploading data to the Summary Care Record
as of the end of Sunday 31st October 2010.

Connecting for Health have recently sent out some new guidance
regarding enrichment of core (or "basic") summary care records:
http://www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/sy...

• Please could you kindly state the number of practices within your
PCT that have added more than core information to patient summary
care records (that is, have enriched one, some or all of their
patients' summary care records).

• Please could you kindly state the total number of patient summary
care records, as uploaded by participating practices within your
PCT, that have been enriched in any way beyond core information.

As per Section 4a of Part 1 of the FOI Act
(
http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/ukp...
) I would like the information in question held at the time when my
request is received (draft or otherwise), except that account may
be taken of any amendment or deletion made between now and the
latest time by which the information is to be communicated to me,
being an amendment or deletion that would have been made regardless
of the receipt of my request.

I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to send me the
requested information promptly and in any event not later than the
twentieth working day following the date of receipt of my request -
that is by then end of Monday 29th November 2010.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, or specific items
within the responses are withheld from disclosure, then you must
justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the
act, as per Section 17 of the Act
(
http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/ukp...
). Where you rely on a qualified exemption to withhold disclosure,
you are obliged to consider the public interest in your decision
and the refusal notice must explain not only which exemption
applies and why, but also the public interest arguments addressed
in reaching the decision.

I wish to receive the information by email; I believe such a
request would be reasonable in these circumstances. As per Section
11 of Part 1 of the FOI Act (
http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/ukp...
) I would be grateful if you would "so far as reasonably
practicable give effect to that preference"; if you determine that
it is not reasonably practicable to comply with this preference
then you are required by law to notify me of the reasons for your
determination.

I would be grateful if you would kindly acknowledge receipt of this
request as recommended by the ICO (“It would be good practice to
acknowledge receipt of requests and to refer to the 20 working day
time limit, so that applicants know their request is being dealt
with”).

Thank you once again.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Neil Bhatia
