I had no idea you had to pay for a FOI under GDPR Rules – can someone please enlighten me. I am asking something that the public and especially residents under the London Borough of Enfield might be interested in? This is of public interest when I know already £28000 has been spent on Cygnet Godden Green Requires Improvement. Castle Ward. So I now wish to know how much the rest costs. How comes North Central London CCG wishes to charge when I have not been charged before and I know already it is North Central London CCG Enfield that hold the information. So please send me your invoice in order that I can notify everyone of your fees. I am asking a simple question and I want a simple answer that you can produce in 5 seconds. Look forward to hearing from you NCL CCG – you are responsible to the public for providing services and so you should be accountable to the public especially when you are spending vast sums of money for sub-standard care and treatment at the expense of the NHS to private institutions and are unrated in some cases.
Dear Susan Bevis
