Good Afternoon,

Last Dec 12, 2019 I submitted a request:
See link of my request:
https://www.foi.gov.ph/requests/aglzfmVmb2ktcGhyHQsSB0NvbnRlbnQiEERPSC0yNjI4OTM3MDkxMjgM

I was given the website of NHFR where all the hospitals are listed. However, the bed capacity is not stated.

Now, I found this same request and what happened was she was given a hospital list with bed capacity sent on her email address.

I would like to get the same file she did. Thanks
