Dear Airedale NHS Foundation Trust,
I'm enquiring about sexual health postal testing kits. I would like to know:
(1) the amount spent in pounds sterling on sexual health postal testing kits (which are sent through the post to a patient's home and then returned by them for analysis) in the past three financial years: 2018-19; 2017-18; 2016-17 – up to the latest year for which data is held.
(2) the number of sexual health postal testing kits sent to patients in the past three years (figures for each year)
(3) the number of sexual health postal testing kits returned to the authority in the same years (figures for each year)
Please contact me at your earliest convenience for any clarification and also advise me on my request as per the relevant legislation. Please provide the data in Excel spreadsheet format.
Dear Ms Cummings
Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 16^th April 2019. Your request has been given
the Reference Number ANHST REF 4170 .
We will now proceed to process the request. The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is 16^th May 2019. We will endeavour to
respond to you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage
delays or if we need more information from you.
Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested. Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the public interest in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.
In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request, or we can charge a fee. If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you. If you still wish to receive the information, you will
need to pay the fee before we proceed with your request. We will also
offer assistance and advise you if, by modifying your request, we could
provide you with some non-exempt or free of charge information.
Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.
With kind regards
Information Governance Manager
