In relation to my FOI request regarding serious incidents (reference: ). Can you please confirm the information was provided under the Open Government Licence (OGL) and that the data can be used for commercial use?  

Should the information not be covered by the OGL, please take this email as a formal request for the permission to re-use  the data under the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015 (RPSI), for commercial purposes – not resale.

Data will be used to compile a report, listing the total number of serious incidents (not the actual incidents) recorded by all NHS trusts in England and Wales; the report will be made available to the general public online and offline. We will not re-sell the data. 

Could you please confirm your consent to this proposed use of the data by return of email, including any restrictions on use and any charges if applicable.

Thank you for your enquiry for permission to re-use the information under the OGL to which we consent and this will be recorded on our Re-Use FOIs disclosure log published on the web.
