FOI 4598 CCTV

 

I am writing regarding the trusts expenditure on a number of CCTV & Access Control Systems. The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is withholding this information under Section 38 (Health and Safety) of the Freedom of Information Act.  The Trust accepts that there is a public interest in how the public purse is spent.  However, there is also a need to withhold any information that would compromise the safety of the Trust security team carrying out their role.  Moreover, the disclosure of detailed information about the Trust’s security spend could potentially divulge the level of Trust security and could therefore encourage crime and could also put patients and staff at serious risk.  In assessing the public interest, the Trust takes the view that Section 38 pertains to this request and that the public interest is best served by withholding the information.

 

Please kindly provide me with the following information..

1. The total spend on CCTV Systems & Equipment in the last two years FEB 2015 – FEB 2018
