If it is anticipated that it will take longer than one month to provide a response, where requests are complex or numerous, the applicant will be informed and given an explanation for the delay within the one calendar month.
The timeline commences when the CCG has received a request from an individual and the CCG will need to ensure that ALL of the following are collected as early as possible to meet the required deadline:
