The information requested is not held centrally by Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and to obtain this information patient records would require to be pulled from a patient administration system and manually cross checked against patient data held on another system recording cancer patients, which may involve thousands of records.    Therefore, the cost of compliance would exceed the appropriate limit under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.
