Information requested

You asked for “the total value of the contract between the Scottish Access Collaborative and the Digital Health and Care Institute for the delivery of workshops and a report on Chronic Pain for the Collaborative’s Specialty Group Programme?”

Response

The answer to your question is Specific costs for Specialty Groups included £373,226 in 2018/19 to the Digital Health and Care Institute for the delivery of workshops and written reports for twelve specialty groups.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested.  The reasons why we don’t have the information are outlined in the annex.

Annex - Reasons for not providing information
The Scottish Government does not have the information

Section 17(1) of FOISA (information not held) requires the Scottish Government to notify you if it does not have the information you requested.  The Scottish Government does not have the information you have asked for because we do not have a cost breakdown per specialty and so are unable to provide the cost specifically related to chronic pain.

This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.
