Waiting for an internal review by Aspen Healthcare Ltd of their handling of this request.

Miss Vivienne Taylor

Dear Aspen Healthcare Ltd,

Stats and related data and information needed: How many serious complications after GRS surgery or during GRS surgery, have occurred?

What is being done to reduce, prevent or mitigate serious surgical complications caused by your GRS consultant surgeons?

What are the overall performance outcomes for GRS patients at Parkside Hospital?

Yours faithfully,

Miss Vivienne Taylor

Dear Miss Taylor,

Thank you for your request dated 11th June 2021

Please note that Aspen Healthcare is a Private Healthcare organisation,
and as such data relating to private treatments will not be shared under
Freedom of Information Act 2000.  Aspen does however receive a number of
NHS referred treatments, and as such we are working to gather information
relating only to such treatments.  This will likely mean the figures
provided will only be a small sub-set of actual figures. 


I will provide a response as soon as possible, and by no later than the
9th July 2021.​

Kind regards,

Charlie Eustace

Dear Group DPO1,

I understand that Aspen Healthcare is not a public authority and that you have said that there is no obligation to provide a response under the Freedom of Information Act.

However, as an NHS England patient, that has been referred to Parkside Hospital for NHS urology treatment, there must be more accountability and transparency available for the benefit and greater understanding for members of the public and for any NHS patient having treatment at any Aspen Healthcare centre or hospital (in my particular case, Parkside Private Hospital).

It’s simply not good enough to provide inadequate and unacceptable hospital treatment via Parkside Hospital to myself and other vulnerable patients and then refuse to provide FOI responses due to “not obliged due to not being a public authority”.

Please kindly respond to all of my FOI requests, otherwise, I will consider taking further action, in order to acquire the information I need.

Kind regards

Yours sincerely,

Miss Vivienne Taylor
