Dear Lata,

Many apologies for not replying earlier.
I managed to miss this original request for clarification.

To clarify I am interested in any departments that are contracted out to the private sector including Healthcare. For example clinical functions such as labs, pathology, ambulance services, pharmacy, general nursing, cleaning as well as other backroom functions such as administration and IT.

I am not interested in your external suppliers (e.g. of medicines, or stationary) as I understand that would be a very long list.

Please feel free to contact me again if that is still not clear.

Sorry again for the delay in replying
Yours sincerely,

James Lazou

Patel Lata (RWR) Herts Partnership FT,

Hi James
We don’t have labs, pathology
I believe we have ambulance services and some other backroom functions but we do not hold this information on one register
Forwarded your request to our head of finance and he has advised that you send me a simple spreadsheet that contains your requirements and he will then circulate to the relevant departments
