Dear Department of Health,

Thank you for your response to my request, can i please enquire to whether the department of health employ temporary staff and how these engage with the department if you do not run a temporary payroll?

Yours faithfully,

A Thompson

Department of Health,

Our ref: DE-1105031

 

Dear Mr/Ms Thompson,
 
Thank you for your further correspondence of 1 November about temporary
staff and payroll.  I have been asked to reply, and I apologise for the
delay in doing so.

The Freedom of Information Act only applies to recorded information such
as paper or electronic archive material.  As your correspondence asked for
general information, rather than requesting recorded information or
documentation, it did not fall under the provisions of the Act.

 

I am able to confirm that the Department employs fixed term appointees who
are managed through the Department’s payroll, and agency staff who work
for the Department and are managed through the relevant agency’s payroll.

 

With regard to your query about how staff engage with the Department, the
nature of your request is not clear from your correspondence.  However, if
you write back giving further details, Departmental officials may be able
to provide you with a more complete response.

 

I am sorry I cannot be more immediately helpful.

Yours sincerely,
 
Holly Casson
