Questions and Responses

FOI12 179

1. Please would you provide me with details of all the serious untoward incidents (SUIs) occurring at your Primary Care Trust between 1 January, 2011 and 31 December, 2011. Please include within this information:
a) the date of the incident
b) the hospital or other healthcare setting at which it occurred and a description of the
incident, including its classification (i.e. was it classed as a ‘Never Event’)
Response - Please see the attached spreadsheet.

2. For each ‘Never Event’ that took place between 1 January, 2011 and 31 December, 2011, please provide details of the type of ‘Never Event’, as defined in the Department of Health’s ‘Never Events’ list 2012/2013. Please could you tell me the date of the ‘Never Event’, what part of the body or condition was involved?
Response - Please see response to question 1.

3. I would also like to request the investigation reports relating to each of these incidents.
Response - Some of the information contained within these reports constitutes as personal sensitive data as defined within the Data Protection Act and is therefore exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act.

The remaining investigation reports are exempt from release under section 31(2)(b) - (j) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Disclosure of this information could prejudice the exercise of this organisation’s regulatory function. A public interest test has been conducted, and concluded that despite the strong public interest in ensuring that any such investigations are pursued effectively and in an accountable manner, the degree of prejudice this disclosure would cause to both ongoing and future investigations outweighs the public interest. Disclosure of this information could lead to disengagement by staff in future investigations which could undermine the process.

FOI12 256

Please provide the following information:

1. Do you record the ethnic makeup of your staff?
Response - We have the facility to record ethnicity of applicants seeking employment as well as in our main employee HR and Pay system.
 - If not, why not, and do you have any plans to do so?
- If so, how many years have you been doing this and how regularly?

2. Please provide the ethnic breakdown of all staff employed by your organisation.
Response - This information is readily available via our website: http://www.iow.nhs.uk/uploads/Equality/pdfs/Public_Sector_Duty_Report_January_2013_v4.pdfb 

3. Please provide the ethnic makeup of your band 7 and 8 nursing staff for the following years.
Response - To provide this information could lead to individual(s) being identified, given the very low numbers, which would constitute sensitive personal data under the Data Protection Act. This would therefore be exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

4. Does your Trust have a positive discrimination policy to hire under-represented ethnic groups providing they are as qualified for the role as other applicants? Provide details of what your organisation has done in the past two years to ensure it has a workforce that represents your organisations.
Response - The organisation has a policy which promotes equality and recognises the value of having a diverse workforce. We would take positive action to recruit under-presentenced ethnic groups if the need arose.

In 2011 we undertook a self-assessment against the NHS Equality Delivery System Goals and Outcomes.

We publish our equalities information in accordance with the Public Sector Equality Duty.

5. The Race Relations Act 2000 requires NHS organisations to monitor the numbers of staff in each ethnic group who:
- receive training –
- benefit or suffer detriment as a result of its performance assessment procedures -
- are involved in grievance procedures
- are the subject of disciplinary procedures, or
- cease employment.
Please provide a breakdown by ethnic group for the above five categories for the following years: 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Response - See attached spreadsheet for training.

We can confirm that 3 members of staff have been involved in the above four remaining categories in the years 2009 – 2012, however providing further detail such as specific category, or ethnic group could lead to an individual(s) being identified. This would constitute personal data under the Data Protection Act and therefore exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act.

6. Please provide any other relevant information.
Response - A summary of all equalities information also available in the Trust’s Equalities Information Report published on our Equality and Inclusion website.

i) the ‘antenatal review for prospective mother and father with HCP team’ in the after 28
weeks stage (see page 36 of the Healthy Child Programme),
Response - This information was not collected until 2012/13 and is therefore
not available for the years requested. During this period of health visiting
workforce growth, ante natal contact by Health Visitors was targeted rather than

FOI12 360

Please provide the following information:

1. Does your institution have specific guidelines/policy for the recognition and management of patients at risk of contrast induce acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) for the following procedures:
a. Contrast enhanced CT scans
b. Angiogram, angioplasty and stenting
c. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)
Response - This organisation no longer carries out angiogram, angioplasty, stenting or EVAR procedures, however, we do carry out contrast CT scan and have policies for this.

2. If available, please send the guidelines/policy.
Response - Please see attached documents.

3. When was this guideline last reviewed and/or revised?
Response - Policies were reviewed summer 2012.

4. What strategies does your institution use to manage patients at risk of CI-AKI?
Response - Renal function tests (eGFR and creatinine results) are required as part of the referral process. When results are outside of normal reference ranges, the Radiology Department will consult with the Radiologists as to a decision to administer contrast media. Where renal function is poor the Radiologist and referring physician will make a decision based upon risk benefit and will act accordingly to manage the risks of further renal impairment.

5. Do you routinely involve a renal physician in the pre and post procedure management of patients at risk of CI-AKI who are having a contrast enhanced investigation or interventional procedure?
Response - No, however the Radiology Department documents in the patients notes that contrast media has been administered following agreement between the clinicians and Radiologists, and ask the clinicians to manage the patient accordingly. The decision of how to manage the patient is made by the referring clinicians.

6. Do patients at risk of CI-AKI routinely have post procedure serum urea, creatinine, eGFR and electrolytes measured? If so, at what time post procedure does this happen?
Response - Please see above response to question 5. This would be the decision of the referring clinician to manage post procedure.

Response - This information is not available at this present time. Will be captured on new caseload management system (Paris) when it goes live.

To respond to your request now would require manual examination of each child’s health record which constitutes personal sensitive information as defined by the Data Protection Act.

FOI13 088

Please provide the following information:

1. Does your service ask for consent before entering private premises?
Response - In some circumstances, sometimes crews are pragmatically unable to seek consent before entering.

2. Do your staff seek consent, even for examining deceased persons?
Response - A deceased person is unable to give consent. However, appropriate consent may be sought, which could be implied, presumed, direct or by proxy e.g. opening the door and showing the Paramedic the deceased individual may be presumed consent for examination.

3. What is the protocol if the family refuse?
Response - There is no formal protocol; however the Paramedics involved would comply with the wishes of the family.

4. What is your understanding of the offense if any, if you examine a body without consent?
Response - There is no offence committed.

5. What legal right do you have to enter private property if refused access and there are no grounds for believing it is a suspicious death or someone is in need or urgent attention?
Response - None. A call for help must have been raised via 999 or 111 in order for an ambulance to respond. To illicit a response from the ambulance service in such a way and then refuse consent for the examination of the deceased would likely be a miscommunication or raise suspicions over the nature of the death.

6. Given our scenario and a GP was expected to confirm death, what would your service’s actions be with this information after speaking to family over the telephone and based on your policies? i.e. would you contact the on-call district nurse or GP for confirmation?
Response - After speaking with family over the telephone a response would be raised and an attendance elicited. Often ambulance confirmation of death is the most expedient way forward. GP and or district nurse would not be contacted. Police acting on behalf of the coroner may be.

7. What is the protocol for the collection of bodies by the Coroner’s representatives in your area?
Is there an automatic call-out for this service with a death at home following a 999 call?
Response - The Coroner’s representative arranges for the families nominated undertakers to remove the body. If the is no nominated undertakers then the Representative will arrange a duty on call undertaker.
- If not, why not?
Response -
- If there is, what happens when you are notified that these people aren’t needed
because of existing arrangements e.g. a GP coming out and the family wanting to
choose their own undertaker to collect the body?
Response - Unsure that Ambulance service would be involved at all if previous
Arrangements have been made.

8. Are the coroner’s undertakers called off by your service if you initiated their call out before knowing about a GP’s call and preferred undertaker?
Response - The ambulance service has no part in arranging or cancelling undertakers.

9. Is there one or more than one undertaker families can choose in your area representing the Coroner?
Response - There is more than one.

10. Do you consider the wishes of the family to be important as a service?
Response - Yes.

11. Do you take them into account?
Response - Yes.

Please provide the following information for each of the last five years (if your information is recorded in financial years, please provide these inclusive of 2012/13 where possible):

1. Please state the total number of incidents responded to each year for which alcohol consumption is deemed to be the primary cause.

2. Please also state the estimated annual cost to the Trust of responding to callouts of this nature.
Response - It would be very difficult to gain any sort of accurate and meaningful data from the request of the primary cause of the incident to be alcohol related. Calls come into our 999/111 system and, using clinical triage, are then assessed as a primary need for assistance. It would be difficult to extract this data for each case dealt with. The only other way we could produce this information would be from individual patient identifiable information which would be exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act.

I am writing to all NHS Trusts; to ask how many people are employed on zero hours contracts in each trust for the last five years, broken down into medical and non-medical roles.
Response - Please see below table.

These zero hours roles are ones where there are varying levels of work load so they are bank workers on an ad-hoc basis. As you can see from the data these zero hours contracts have been reducing over the years and the remaining ones have been in existence for some time. New ones are not set up as we now use the staff bank.
