Dear Sir/Madam

 

I am writing to you to ask for assistance to help us to improve our
Freedom of Information Services by clicking on the following link:

 

[1]Whittington Health FoI Survey and giving us feedback about your
experience of us and where we might improve our FoI service.  It takes 5
mins.

 

In the last year you will have contacted Whittington Hospital NHS Trust
(Whittington Health) to ask for information under the FoI Act 2000.  You
might be a fellow FoI service worker, a journalist, an MP, work for a
charity, an independent organisation or be a member of the public.

 

We really want to know how we might improve our service so that if there
was a next time that you need information about our health services we
might oblige under the Act even better than the last time.

 

Our survey ([2]Whittington Health FoI Survey) asks about the quality of
the information given to you in respect to your request. Your response
will help us to assess our performance, measure our progress and identify
areas that need attention.

 

Your views are important to us so I hope that you will take just a little
time to participate in this brief web survey.

Your answers will be kept completely confidential. Only anonymous
statistical results will be tabulated and compiled to issue a report and
we will not see any individual applicant person identifiable views or
information.

 

If you have more questions or need any form of assistance please contact
us at the following address: [3][The Whittington Hospital NHS Trust request email]

 

Your response and your participation are greatly appreciated.

 

Yours sincerely,
