    We have not provided the data broken down any further than the above as the East of England Ambulance Service Trust has determined that this information is personal data and would make the data patient identifiable and as such we will be applying exemption s.40(2) and s.40(3A)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act to your request.

    Section 40 (2)
    Any information to which a request for information relates is also exempt information if-
    (a) it constitutes personal data which does not fall within subsection (1), and
    (b) either the first, second or third condition below is satisfied
     
    The first condition includes if disclosure of the information to a member of the public otherwise than under FOIA would contravene any of the data protection principles (s.40(3A)(a)).

    In this case the Trust believes that disclosure of the information would result in a breach of the first principle stated in the Data Protection Act 2018.

    First Data Protection Principle:
    (1) The first data protection principle is that the processing of personal data for any of the law enforcement purposes must be lawful and fair.
    (2) The processing of personal data for any of the law enforcement purposes is lawful only if and to the extent that it is based on law and either-
                    (a) the data subject has given consent to the processing for that purpose, or
                    (b) the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for that purpose by a competent authority
     
    The Trust considers that disclosure of this information would not be fair and therefore the information is exempt from disclosure.

     

    Section 40(2) together with s.40(3A)(a) provide an absolute exemption and therefore is not subject to the public interest test.
