2. Volumes of cataract surgery performed for each financial year between 2006 and 2016 by name and type of provider (e.g. NHS Hospital, vs. Independent Provider of NHS services).

Prior to CCGs, please provide data from the PCTs

Please see attached Excel sheet. NHS Calderdale CCG does not hold any information relating to PCT activity prior to 1st April 2013.

Due to the low number of individuals involved we are unable to disclose the exact figures if it is, equal to, or less than 5 individuals especially where there is a risk, because of the small numbers involved, of identifying individuals. These figures are therefore not included in the total figure.

Releasing the exact figures against the year could potentially support re identification of individuals and we are therefore issuing an exemption notice under section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Information is exempt from disclosure under section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (personal information) where to release it would contravene the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). In order to comply with the DPA, disclosure of personal data under the FOIA must be fair (the first data protection principle). Having taken this into account, the CCG has decided that it would not be fair to release exact numbers where those numbers are less than 5, as this could enable identification of the persons concerned. This information is therefore exempt under FOIA section 40(2).

3. Source of referrals (GP, optician, hospital, other) for cataract surgery for each financial year between 2006 and 2016.

What is the nature of your referral management system (if any)?

NHS Calderdale CCG does not operate a referral management system at this time.

NHS Calderdale does commission a cataract service provided by optometrists that provides the pre and post-operative element of the cataract pathway. If deemed appropriate, the optometrist refers the patient for surgery after their pre-op attendance. Cataract surgery is available at a provider of the patient’s choice (The CCG’s main provider is Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust).
