REF:            2017-382

Subject:        Total income for every year since 2012.

    

 

Request:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request your Foundation Trusts’ private patient income as a number and a percentage of your total income for every year since 2012.

Though I appreciate that your 2015-16 statistics are published and would therefore be covered by s.21 of the FOIA, I cannot access your 12-13, 13-14, 14-15 statistics and I believe your 16-17 statistics may now be available though are not yet published.

 

 

Response:

Under Section 21 – information already reasonably accessible

 

This exemption applies if the information requested is already accessible to the requester. You could apply this if you know that the requester already has the information, or if it is already in the public domain.

 

Please follow the link to our Publication Scheme, section 2A:

http://www.boltonft.nhs.uk/about-us/freedom-of-information/publication-scheme/

 

With the annual report for 16-17 will be published in September.

 

Section 22 – information intended for future publication

 

This exemption applies if, when you receive a request for information, you are preparing the material and definitely intend for it to be published,  and it is reasonable not to disclose it until then.
