Kept in the Dark: Dear Simon Stevens, we’re still waiting after 285 days


NHS England Simon Steven still waiting after 285 days


I am sorry that the response to your internal review request is taking longer to complete than our standard and the understandable frustration this may be causing you.

Further to your initial Internal Review request, the panel convened on 8 April 2015 and we hope to be able to provide you with the panel’s full findings on Friday 8 May 2015.

We’re still waiting.

Then again, we’ve been waiting for a response since 12 September 2014. That’s 285 days.

Why do the bureaucrats at NHS England believe that the Freedom of Information Act doesn’t apply to them?

Why isn’t the NHS bureaucracy transparent and accountable? It is as though the Francis Report had never been written.
