Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction

Dear ……..

I am writing to acknowledge that your request for information was received by NHS Digital on 27th August 2020 and is currently being considered.

If NHS Digital is able to provide you with the information you have requested, then under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act you are entitled to receive it promptly and in any event no later than the 20th working day following the date of receipt. However, we may need to contact you to clarify your request. If this is required we aim to do this promptly but no later than 7 days after receiving your initial request for information.

May I take this opportunity to explain the FOI Act in more detail? The Act provides a ‘General right of access to information held by public authorities’However, it also defines a number of exemptions which may prevent the release of some or all of the information you have requested. Therefore, NHS Digital will assess your information request in light of any relevant exemptions.

If exemptions do apply, then NHS Digital may decide not to release all, or part, of the information you have requested. I shall inform you if this is the case, and advise you of your rights of appeal.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken as to whether to release the information to you.

The response to your request will be sent to you by email, however if you require your response in any other format, please contact us to discuss a suitable format.

NHS Digital will not normally charge a fee to provide you with the information you have requested, unless the cost of dealing with your request is more than £450 as outlined in Section 12 of the FOI Act and Section 3 of the The FOI and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004. If it appears likely that your request will cost more, then NHS Digital is able to refuse to supply the information.  As per our obligations under Section 16 of the FOI Act, every effort will be made to provide you with details of how you may be able to reframe your request in order for us to complete the required work within the (£450 / 18 person hours) cost limit.

If you have any queries or should you wish to make a complaint about the manner in which your request is being processed then please do not hesitate to contact us at enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk in the first instance.

Thank you for that 
This will be a baseline for next years figures
I now need the information of deaths for release in July 2021
You say that Covid 19 deaths are excluded, if without testing but “confirmed” and it is a copy of these I require 
Please forward the Covid figure to March 2020

And subsequent figures when released
