Dear James A Owen,  

 

Thank you for your communication dated 21 August 2019.

 

NHS England has assessed your communication as a request under the Freedom
of Information (FOI) Act 2000. As such, your request is being dealt with
under the terms of the FOI Act, and has been allocated the following
reference number: FOI-060046.

 

Your exact request was:

 

“Can you please give me access to the accounts of all spends of Well
North, from 2015 to the present day.

Is the funding paid to a private company for its administration.

What staff is in place and their salaries at each Well North subsidiary.

What records are kept as to the advantage of spending our money through

NHS England does not hold information in relation to your request.

 

It may help if we first explain that NHS England is not the same as ‘the
NHS in England’. The NHS in England is not a single organisation but is
made up of a range of organisations such as Hospitals, Clinical
Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Ambulance Trusts. NHS England is
responsible for commissioning primary care services such as GP and dental
surgeries, as well as some specialised secondary care services. Therefore,
any recorded information NHS England may be able to provide in response to
an FOI request will generally relate to the services NHS England
commissions.

 

As such, we do not have access to the accounts of any third-party
organisation with which we work.

 

You may wish to redirect your enquiry to Well North Enterprises directly.
You can contact them at the email address provided below:

information you are seeking from NHS England. Please send any clarified
request to [2][NHS England request email].

 

Once received, NHS England will write to acknowledge receipt of your
request and to provide you with a reference number. Please note that the
20 working day timeframe for complying with an FOI request will not
commence until the above information is provided.

 

We hope this information is helpful. However, if you are dissatisfied, you
have the right to ask for an internal review. This should be requested in
writing within two months of the date of this letter. Your correspondence
should be labelled “Internal Review” and should outline your concerns
and/or the area(s) you would like the review to consider. Internal Review
requests should be sent to:

decision. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) can be contacted at:
