The Trust holds the requested information, but considers it is exempt under section 12 of the Act, as the cost of compliance is estimated to exceed the appropriate limit.

The information on shifts exceeding the cap is sent to NHSI on a weekly basis, but this is in different spreadsheets (52, for the year) and differing worksheets within those spreadsheets. The format that NHSI require the information has changed over the last few months so is inconsistent.
