The request was successful.

Dear Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust,

I would like to know about the financing of the overseas visitor management team at your trust during the period from the 1st of January 2015 until the 1st of January 2016. Please provide a close estimate of the cost of the overseas team during that period. This cost could include salaries, but also overheads including facilities and equipment used.

Yours faithfully,

Ruth Atkinson

FOIA (RTH) OUH,

Dear Ruth,

I am afraid I am not getting the full picture of what it is you would like us to provide. We cannot disclose individual salaries of the team, but can disclose a budget associated to the team. We can tell you the number of staff. We use shared offices. Please can you expand on what you mean by facilities and equipment.

At this stage, I am unable to proceed with this request until I receive further clarity that will help me validate and proceed to the next stage.

Regards,

Valerie Gray

Dear Valerie,

Thank you for your response. I would like to know, as far as possible, the cost of the overseas team. I would be grateful for any information you could provide, which could include:

1. the overall budget associated with the team
2. the number of staff and estimates of their salaries (if this is not covered by point 1)
3. overheads associated with working. So, perhaps the cost of office space and any equipment used. I understand that you are unlikely to have figures on this, in which case I'd be happy to find out just information on points 1 and 2.

Thank you so much for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Ruth Atkinson
