Thank you for your Official Information Act request. This is
an automatic reply to let you know we received it.

In accordance with the Act, we'll let you know our decision within no more
than 20 working days. If you'd like to calculate the timeframe, you can
use the Ombudsman's online calculator
here: [1]http://www.ombudsman.parliament.nz/

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic response, the Ministry is experiencing
significantly higher volumes of queries and requests for information. This
means we may take some time in responding to your request. The Ministry
regularly updates information about the COVID-19 situation and publishes
OIA responses considered to be of public interest:

Please also refer to the Unite Against Covid-19 website for copies of
papers, minutes, and key advice for the decisions the Government has made

Sometimes we may need to clarify aspects of a request. You can expect to
hear from us soon if that is the case here.

individual DHBs in due course.

Kia ora Emma,

Thank you for your request for official information regarding statistics on procedures, which was received by Hutt Valley and Capital & Coast District Health Boards (2DHB) on 15 June 2022.

Your request has been received and logged. Due to our two DHBs sharing information, staff, many services, and a single Chief Executive, you will receive a joint 2DHB response to your request. Please be assured that separate data sets will apply to each DHB in our joint response.

As required under the OIA, we will respond to your request within 20 working days. You should therefore receive a response on or before 14 July 2022.

If a large amount of information has been requested or if 2DHB needs to consult in order to make a decision, we may need to extend this date (this is provided for in section 15A of the Act). We will advise you if such an extension is necessary.

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact 2DHB by return email or by emailing us at [email address] or [email address]. If any additional factors come to light which are relevant to your request, please do not hesitate to contact us so that these can be taken into account.

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman. Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or free phone 0800 802 602.

day your request was received. If we are unable to respond to your request
by then, we will notify you of an extension of that timeframe.

Hello Emma,

 

Thank you for your OIA request received today as a transfer from the
Ministry of Health.

 

While we will endeavour to provide a response to you within the 20 working
days allowed under the Act, it should be noted that Waitematâ DHB’s
clinicians, managers and staff are concentrating on measures to manage and
recover from the COVID-19 outbreak in the region.

 

Therefore, we have limited capacity to respond to some OIA requests. If
for any reason we are unable to meet the deadline and need to extend the
timeframe for your response, we will be in touch to advise why this has
been necessary and to indicate when your response will be ready.

 

Please note that Waitematâ DHB supports the open disclosure of information
to assist community understanding of how we are delivering publicly-funded
healthcare. This includes the proactive publication of anonymised Official
Information Act responses on our website from 10 working days after they
have been released.

 

If you feel that there are good reasons why your response should not be
made publicly available, we will be happy to consider this.

Hello Emma,

 

Thank you for your OIA request received today as a transfer from the
Ministry of Health.

 

While we will endeavour to provide a response to you within the 20 working
days allowed under the Act, it should be noted that Waitematâ DHB’s
clinicians, managers and staff are concentrating on measures to manage and
recover from the COVID-19 outbreak in the region.

 

Therefore, we have limited capacity to respond to some OIA requests. If
for any reason we are unable to meet the deadline and need to extend the
timeframe for your response, we will be in touch to advise why this has
been necessary and to indicate when your response will be ready.

 

Please note that Waitematâ DHB supports the open disclosure of information
to assist community understanding of how we are delivering publicly-funded
healthcare. This includes the proactive publication of anonymised Official
Information Act responses on our website from 10 working days after they
have been released.

 

If you feel that there are good reasons why your response should not be
made publicly available, we will be happy to consider this.

Kia ora Emma, 

 

Thank you for your request for official information received on 7 June
2022 for: 

  

 “I would like to request the following information for each of the DHBs
in New Zealand, split by DHB.

1. The total number of procedures outsourced by year (including the year
to date) for the past five years.

2. For each year, provide a breakdown of the type of procedure.
3. For each year, provide the total spend on outsourced elective
surgeries.
4. For each year, provide the amount that these surgeries would have cost
the DHBs if they had not been outsourced.” 

  

Your request asks for information which is more closely connected with the
functions of individual District Health Boards (DHBs). For this reason,
the Ministry of Health has decided to transfer your request to the DHBs
under section 14(b)(ii) of the Act. You can expect a response from
individual DHBs in due course. 

  

Under section 28(3) of the Act you have the right to ask the Ombudsman

contacted by email at: [4][email address] or by calling 0800

Kia ora Emma

I addition to the clarification request, below, our services also need
clarification on whether or not you want information on ALL elective
procedures that are outsourced RE: your first two questions:

 

1. The total number of procedures outsourced by year (including the year
to date) for the past five years.

2. For each year, provide a breakdown of the type of procedure.

 

This is because elective procedures includes radiology and endoscopy, for
example. Do you want details on these types of procedures also, or just
elective surgeries?

 

Please also note our other two questions, below. Please call me if easier
to discuss by phone.

 

Your OIA request is currently on hold while we await these clarifications
and the OIA clock will re-start once the scope of your request has been
confirmed.

Dear Emma

 

Re: Official Information Request – Outsourcing Elective Surgery Data

 

I am writing to acknowledge your official information request transferred
to us by the Ministry of Health on 15 June 2022.

 

We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible and, in
any event, no later than 13 July 2022.  We will contact you if an
extension is required.

 

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic response, Auckland DHB continues to
experience significantly higher volumes of requests for information. Many
key Auckland DHB and Auckland Regional Public Health Service staff are
currently committed to tasks associated with the current COVID-19
outbreak. This will invariably impact on our ability to respond to certain
OIA requests within normal timeframes. 

 

If you have any questions about management of OIA during the COVID
pandemic you may find it helpful to read the following from the Office of
the Ombudsman
[1]https://smex12-5-en-ctp.trendmicro.com:4...

 

Please note that, like other DHBs across New Zealand, Auckland DHB has
adopted a model of proactive disclosure which sees OIA responses
publically available on our website approximately one month after they
have been released.  If you believe that there are any special reasons why
proactive disclosure should not apply to our response to you, we will be
happy to consider this.

Dear Emma

 

Re: Official Information Act request – Outsourced elective surgeries

 

We refer to your official information request received by Nelson
Marlborough DHB on 15 June 2022.

 

The Official Information Act requires that we advise you of our decision
on your request no later than 20 working days after the day we received
your request. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time
limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the
time of an additional 20 working days to make our decision to 11 August
2022.

 

This extension is necessary because, and as specified under Section
15A(1)(b) of the Official Information Act 1982, ‘consultations necessary
to make a decision on the request are such that a proper response cannot
reasonably be made within the original time limit’.

 

On behalf of the responding services, we will endeavour to respond to your
request as soon as reasonably practicable.

 

You have the right to seek an investigation by the Ombudsman of this
decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
[1]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or free phone 0800 802 602.
