I write with a request for information under the FOIA.

My request is as follows:

  1. Does your trust provide private treatment services, self-funded services, or any other service financed in full or part by the patient? If so, which services are offered on this basis and at which hospitals?
  2. Please provide the cost (charge) for each of the services;
  3. How many patients received private treatment services, self-funded services or any other service financed in full or in part by the patient in 2014/15 and, separately, in 2015/16? If within the cost limit please disclose how many patients received each service in 2015/16;
  4. Please provide the total income from the services in 2014/15 and, separately, in 2015/16.

 

 

Response:

We provide Private Patient Treatment Services, funded by the patients and/or their insurance companies at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust.
