NHS Kirklees | FOI Requests | accessed 30 July 2009

#30 Request received 12 May 2009

Please could you answer the following query under Freedom of Information. 
 
Q: Please provide details of the cost-per-patient for the GP-led health centre/s in your PCT* 
 
*Please note: Provided that the tendering process for each contract has been completed, we do not believe this information can be withheld on the grounds of commercial confidentiality, as contracts are NHS funded with public money. This should therefore permit the information to be released into the public domain.  

Best Regards,
(name supplied)

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

Please find detailed below the information that the PCT holds in response to your question.

Q: Please provide details of the cost-per-patient for the GP-led health centre/s in your PCT.
 
The requested information cannot be released. This is on the basis of commercial interests and that its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of the NHS (Para 43(2)). Release of this information is not deemed to be in the public interest because it may prejudice the NHS’s ability to secure value for money in similar procurements and hence impact on the effective use of public funds. This is because the procurement process for aGP-led health centre is still underway in other PCT(s) within Yorkshire and The Humber; once all such closely-related procurements are completed (currently expected Autumn 2009, but subject to change) there is not expected to be any objection to releasing the information.”

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards
NHS Kirklees
