Dear Dr Watson

 

We write further to your recent request for information in accordance with
the Freedom of Information Act received in this office on 26^th March 2018

 

We are in the process of collating this information but in order for us to
provide a full response we would be grateful if you could clarify as to
whether the risk assessment you are requesting refers to the women who are
supported to use the centre or whether the information requested relates
to the operational arrangements for its use and the associated SOP’s

 

Also, the building is owned by Wirral Council therefore any risk
assessment for the building may would not be Wirral University Teaching
Hospital’s information to release and you would need to contact them
direct for this information

 

We therefore, await your further instructions before proceeding with the
response.

 

We look forward to hearing from you

 

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Accesstoinformationoffice (WIRRAL UNIVERSITY TEACHING HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

I write to remind you that WUTH have not complied with the law in not responding to my FOI request in a timely manner.

The information I have requested should have been readily at hand. These are safety critical documents that all who are working in any association with the Secombe pop up Centre should have easy access to.

I will be writing shortly to both the ICO and the HSE to advise them of the situation. WUTH have not complied with the law and I am really at a loss to think why this would be the case,

Yours sincerely,

Timothy Watson

Dear Accesstoinformationoffice (WIRRAL UNIVERSITY TEACHING HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

As you have taken so long to reply to this FOI , well beyond the time required by law, I ask that you instigate an internal review.

Yours sincerely,

Hopefully our response should be with you shortly
