Dear Mr Fryer

We acknowledge receipt of your request and are processing it under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

However, due to the ongoing CORONAVIRUS pandemic, the Trust is facing numerous challenges, including pressures in maintaining staffing levels. The Trust will endeavour to respond to your request for information that the Trust holds within the statutory 20-working-day period, however, this may not always be possible. As you will appreciate, the Trust is prioritising the delivery of healthcare and focusing its resources on making sure that service users are receiving the treatment and care needed. This means that staff who would usually assist with responding to information requests are focusing the majority of their time and attention to this in order to ensure that our service users are well looked after. Unfortunately, this may mean that there could be a delay in providing you with the information that you have requested. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is aware of these understandable delays and has stated that it will not penalise organisations, such as the Trust, that need to prioritise their resource within other areas or adapt their usual approach during this time.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards
