Total number Type 1 & Type 2 Patient Objections recorded across England

The request was refused by NHS Digital.

Dear Health and Social Care Information Centre,

Thank you very much for all your previous FOI responses.

I would like to make another request under the FOI Act.

For the purposes of the Act, please take the date of your receipt of this request as 29th March.

I understand that the HSCIC has now begun to collect the data specified in the Customer Requirement Summary with respect to Type 1 and Type 2 patient objections recorded at GP practices across England, via GPES extractions.

http://www.hscic.gov.uk/media/13614/Pati...

As of the 1st March collection, please could you provide me with the following information:

• The total number (aggregate count) of patients across England who have a Type 1 objection (9Nu0 or equivalent) recorded at their GP surgery

• The total number (aggregate count) of patients across England who have a Type 2 objection (9Nu4 or equivalent) recorded at their GP surgery

I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to send me the requested information promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt of my request.

I would be grateful if you would kindly acknowledge receipt of this request as recommended by the ICO (“It would be good practice to acknowledge receipt of requests and to refer to the 20 working day time limit, so that applicants know their request is being dealt with”).

Thank you once again.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Neil Bhatia

contact you to clarify your request. If this is required we aim to do
this promptly but no later than 7 days after receiving your initial
request for information. 

May I take this opportunity to explain the FOI Act in more detail. The Act
provides a 'General right of access to information held by public

prevent the release of some or all of the information you have requested.
Therefore, the HSCIC will assess your information request in light of any
relevant exemptions.

then the HSCIC is able to refuse to supply the information.  As per our
obligations under Section 16 of the FOI Act, every effort will be made to
provide you with details of how you may be able to reframe your request in
order for us to complete the required work within the (£450 / 18 person

Dear HSCIC Enquiries,

Further to my request, to which I am expecting a response by 25th April, I note now that the number of type 2 opt-outs nationally has now been published.

Clearly, that publication answers one of my requests.

I look forward to the total number of Type 1 ("9Nu0") objections recorded across England being provided to me as per my request.

Kind regards,

Dr Neil Bhatia
