The Health and Social Care Management Board regularly discuss the performance of Health Boards within the context of the performance escalation framework. They discussed whether or not to escalate a Board at 7 of their meetings between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2019.

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the website listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy. 
While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because the following exemptions, section 30(b)(ii) and section 38(1)(b) applies to that information. The reasons why those exemptions apply are explained in the Annex to this letter.
