Thank you for your Freedom of information request.

Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is committed to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

However, the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic at the current time. Understandably, our resources have been diverted to support our front-line colleagues who are working tremendously hard to provide care for our patients, and to those in need of our services.

We strive to be transparent and to work with an open culture. But at this time, whilst care of our patients and the safety of our staff takes precedent, it is likely that responses to some requests for information will be delayed. We apologise for this position in advance, and will endeavour to provide you with as much information as we can, as soon as we are able.

If you could withdraw your request and resubmit it at a later date please advise us by replying to this email. This would be appreciated at this time as we are in the middle of a pandemic.

The Information Commissioners Office has recognised the current situation in the NHS.

Kind regards

Good afternoon

We have not received a response from you as to whether you would please consider withdrawing your FOI at this time and resubmitting it at a later date once the pandemic is under control. This would be appreciated as many of our staff have been redeployed to the frontline to assist colleagues with patient care.

We await your response.
