Hello,

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request. Freedom of information only applies to corporate information; this e-mail confirms receipt of your request for this type of information only.

Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act we will expect to respond to this request in 20 working days. However we are now investigating the nature of the search and the quantity of information requested. If there is a cost involved in collecting the information then we will suspend the period for response until such time as we receive your payment. We will advise you of any such costs.

In accordance with section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 where multiple requests for information are received from one person or by different persons who appear to be acting in together in a single campaign the estimated cost of complying with any of the requests is to be taken to be the estimated total cost of complying with all of them. To this effect your requests for information will be dealt with under the single reference number above.

There are also a number of exemptions which the Act permits with respect to releasing information. The information will be assessed for these exemptions prior to us releasing the information to you. We will advise you if we are unable to provide the information requested.

Please note that a significant amount of information is also available via our Publication Scheme which can be accessed via the Trust’s website www.coch.nhs.uk and one of its benefits is that it makes information easily accessible and without charge.

Dear Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Transactions over £25,000 from January 2016'.

On 19 February 2019, I sent you a FOI request for your expenditure over £25,000 from January 2016 to present.

On 21 March 2019, you provided me with a link to your data. However, the data on the website provided does not provide dates of transactions, only sub-totals of spending with suppliers.

In my FOI I requested data including the date, value and recipient of each transaction.

For this reason, I would like to request an Internal Review of the initial response to my Freedom of Information request.

I await your response within 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

George Brown
