Dear Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust,

I would like sickness absence information for the last 5 years or as far back as data is available.

Please can it be broken down by month and department for every department (clinical and non clinical)
The information I would like is:
Percentage absence for the month or the total head count for the department and number of days lost to sickness.
Total cost to the organisation in terms of salaries paid or the pay bands of the absentees.
Any additional cost due to the sicknesses, such as the use of agency staff (if known)

Yours faithfully,

Carly Simmons

Dear Freedom of information Office,

I'm afraid that whatdotheyknow automatically removes email addresses. However I would like a different format as the pdf file is practically unreadable.

Can you please send the data in a csv format which will be much smaller than a pdf file and will be possible to read in excel.

Yours sincerely,

Carly Simmons
