NHS Calderdale CCG does not routinely commission the services listed above.    Requests for these services would be subject to the CCG’s Individual Funding Request process. Due to the low number of individuals involved, we are unable to disclose this information as it is potentially patient identifiable.  As such, we are issuing an exemption notice under section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides an absolute exemption where disclosure of personal data about someone other than the applicant would contravene any of the data protection principles. Consequently, the exemption is not subject to the public interest test.
