REF:            2017-386

Subject:        Cancelled operations

 

 

Request:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request the number of operations which have been cancelled for NHS patients this year and every year since 2012.

Though I appreciate that these statistics are available for English regions, they are not available for individual foundation trusts and therefore I do not believe S.21 of the FOIA would be applicable to this request.

 

 

Response:

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.
