    Can you please complete the attached spreadsheet with details of your Trust Secretary/Company Secretary? This request is made under the  Freedom of Information Act

    As the Trust's name does not appear in the drop down list of NHS Trusts we have not been able to complete your form fully, therefore we have provided the information we can release below.

    Name of Trust

    East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust

    Type of Trust

    Ambulance

    Job Title

    Trust Secretary

    Age/Gender/Ethnicity

    Regarding the question above, East of England Ambulance Service Trust has determined that the information you have requested is personal data and as such we will be applying exemption s.40(2) and s.40(3A)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act to this part of 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.
