Re FOI 0132
Dear Dr Julian
Further to your request from this Trust for information, I would like to ask for some clarification.
This trust has a wide number of services including palliative care, district nursing and adult and older peoples mental health services. Does question 1a relate to any specific service?
Information Governance Team
Dear Information Governance Team,
Many thanks for coming back to me to seek clarification. An overall total number from all services would be fine for 1a, if you were able to break it down by service without it taking an unreasonable amount of time, then please feel free to do so, but it's not essential for my purposes.
If anything else is unclear please don't hesitate to contact me,
Dr George Julian
