Dear Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, would you be so kind as to answer the below questions. Any responses should cover the time period from the initiation of the national HPV vaccination scheme to present. I am specifically looking for information regarding the geographical area covered by Doncaster Primary Care Trust.

1) Do all girls aged 12 -13 get offered the HPV vaccine at school?
2) a) for girls accepting, do their GPs get notified of their vaccination?
b) for girls offered but not accepting the vaccine, do their GPs get notified of their non-vaccination?

3)a) Have any schools in the area refused to allow either clinicians or school nurses to administer the HPV vaccine?
b) If so, which?
c) If the answer to 3a) is yes, what are the reasons provided for this?
d) What is the policy/process for alternative arrangements for any schools that have opted out?
e) Please provide a copy of the official notifications, or record of that notification

4a) Have any schools in the area opted out of the HPV vaccine catch up programme at any point?
4b) If the answer to 4a) is yes, which?

Yours faithfully,

Michelle Brook

Dear Rachel,

I contacted you on the 17th November, with an FOI request relating to HPV vaccinations, receiving an acknowledgement on the 19th November. According to law, a reply should have been
forthcoming by 17 December at the latest - but as of today (21st December) I have yet to hear from you.

I request that you provide me with an update regarding this request
in a prompt fashion.

Yours sincerely,

Michelle

The response above dated 17th December was sent on that date, but to the wrong address so it wasn't delivered to this thread until I moved it just now.
