Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50094598
  • Date: 7 September 2006
  • Public Authority: North Hertfordshire and Stevenage Primary Care Trust
  • Summary: The complainant requested from the eight Primary Care Trusts within Hertfordshire, information regarding payments made to an operator of residential homes within Hertfordshire for the years 1998/99 to 2003. The North Hertfordshire and Stevenage Primary Care Trust responded to this request on behalf of itself and the other seven trusts. The public authority was able to supply details of payments for some of the years in question but was unable to supply details of payments made for the years prior to 2001 because it said that it did not hold the information. The public authority explained that Primary Care Trusts were established in 2001 and that financial information from before 2001 had inadvertently been disposed of as part of the preparation for the establishment of the Primary Care Trusts within Hertfordshire. The Commissioner is satisfied that the public authority has supplied all of the information that it holds and has decided that it dealt with the complainant’s request in accordance with the section 1 of the Act. However the public authority failed to respond to the request within 20 working days and did not provide the complainant with details of an internal review procedure.
