For each of the above I would like to know where there is an expectation for consultation / treatment plan to be documented electronically.

I appreciate that the above request is very detailed, and I am hoping that this is information you regularly collect from various electronic means. 

My reason for submitting this request is to enable me to complete my dissertation for my MSc in Health & Social Care Management. I am undertaking a systematic review of the ‘NHS Services, Seven Days a Week Forum’ review that has recently been published by NHS England.

I would like to receive this data in electronic form via Microsoft Excel if possible.

Please note that Community, Mental Health, Pharmacy & Ambulance Services are excluded from this study.

The spreadsheet below provides numbers (FTE and Headcount) of Doctors as at 1st January 2013 and also at 31st December 2015.  This is by Junior Doctor in Training/Trust Doctor/Consultant groupings, by Business Unit.  However, the cost of compliance to provide the further breakdown of information requested would exceed the appropriate limit under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act since this information is not held centrally in an electronic format.
