FOI Requests (Cardiff and Vale UHB - Information Governance), Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

Dear Mr Owens,

 

I am writing in response to your e-mail below requesting information from
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (the UHB) under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives individuals the right to access
official information. The Act allows the right to request any recorded
information held by a public authority, such as Cardiff and Vale UHB.  A
request can be made for any information it is thought a public authority
may hold. The right only covers recorded information which includes
information held on computers, in emails and in printed or handwritten
documents as well as images, video and audio recordings.  

 

A request can take the form of a question, rather than a request for
specific documents, but an authority does not have to answer your question
if this would mean creating new information or giving an opinion or
judgment that is not already recorded.

 

As you are making a request under the Freedom of Information Act the UHB
will consider your request in accordance with the Act and in line with the
appropriate guidance issued by the Information Commissioner as detailed
below.

 

 The UHB will:

 

• identify which questions amount to requests for information held on
record;

 

• be ready to offer advice and assistance that is reasonable in the
circumstances; and

 

• provide a response in line with the requirements of the legislation.  

 

I would now like to confirm that your request has been forwarded to the
relevant department to action. A further response will be issued in due
course.

 

As your request is being dealt with under FoI, there is a deadline of 20
working days for response to be issued.

 

Yours sincerely,

Abigail Coultis

Dear FOI Requests (Cardiff and Vale UHB - Information Governance),

To clarify, I'm looking for information as described, but broken into:

1. That expenditure on training the trust had to provide, to meet trust policy, maintain staff professional registration, or to otherwise ensure that staff can continue to work - as an example, clinical staff must all have a yearly refresher on Basic Life Support.

2. That expenditure that was on training the trust provided at its' own discretion, to advance staff careers and provide extra skills to the trust that are greater than the minimum requirements of the role. For example, trusts sometimes fund postgraduate education for clinicians.

I hope this clarifies the request for you.

Yours sincerely,

J Owens
