Subject:        Correspondence to the Department of Health




Please provide me with copies of all correspondence signed by any member of your executive board (or sent from their e-mail account) to either the DHSC, PHE or NHS England where there is a mention of either (i) ventilators and (ii) PPE equipment in relation to how your Trust will cope with the influx of Coronavirus patients and/or how a lack of (i) ventilators and (ii) PPE equipment is endangering the lives of your patients or staff.




The Trust is fully committed operationally to dealing with the coronavirus epidemic. At this stage it will not be possible to fulfil your request although if you wish to submit this again at a later stage we would be prepared to consider it.

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