The complainant has requested information relating to wide-scale health changes in North West London. He requested the supplementary assurances that were provided by North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups (NWL CCGs) in response to a letter ‘Shaping a Healthier Future; Next Steps’ that was sent to them by NHS England, dated 7 November 2017. NHS England refused to provide this information citing section 22 of the FOIA – information intended for future publication. The Commissioner’s decision is that NHS England has correctly applied section 22 of the FOIA and that, at the time of the request, the balance of the public interest favoured maintaining the exemption. The Commissioner does not require any steps to be taken as a result of this decision notice.
