Dear South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'River House 2012-10-01 critical incident FoI issues'.

Thank you for your response dated 2014-10-29. It is my understanding that the refusal of releasing correspondences between the Trust officers by claiming an advice privilege exemption under s42 of the FOIA is incorrect. The ICO guidance about the use of s42 (available at http://ico.org.uk/for_organisations/free...) is clear that advice from legal advisers (assuming that the 'Trust officers' are legal advisers) 'is unlikely to be privileged, unless it also covers legal concerns, such as advice on legal remedies to a problem.' As there are no legal concerns such as legal remedies involved in the information I seek I do not understand how this exemption can be claimed to apply.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

I am looking forward to receiving your internal review and hopefully the original information sought as well.

Yours faithfully,

David Mery

Tunmore, Ben, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust
