I would be grateful if you would provide copies of any, and all, documents in the possession of the PCT, including any communications from any third party that substantiate that the processing of sensitive medical information outside the EU, as described in this article, is lawful and particularly that it is in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

Dear Mr Steele ,

Because of the initial error, the correct response to this FOIA request is now substantially over due. I await the correct response which I assume relates to records and data held by sections of the PCT other than the Community Services provider arm.

I have no wish to escalate this to the Information Commissioners Office and would be grateful if you would arrange for a response to be expedited.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Paul Thornton

Dear Dr Thornton,

Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay. We will do our utmost
to get a response to you as soon as possible.

Regards,
Rob
