Response:

Section 12 – cost of compliance exceeds appropriate limit

 

From our preliminary assessment, it is clear that we will not be able to answer your request without further clarification.

 

We estimate that it will take us in excess of 2.5 working days to determine appropriate material and locate, retrieve and extract the information in reference to your request. Therefore, your request will not be processed further.

 

Section 12 of the Act makes provision for public authorities to refuse requests for information where the cost of dealing with them would exceed the appropriate limit, which for Bolton NHS Foundation Trust is set at £450. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending 2.5 working days in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.

To protect you and our staff during the current outbreak of Covid-19 we’ve put in place significant restrictions on hospital visitors.
