I am trying to adjust an SQL query to output in a specific Datetime format. I am close but it needs to output in British Format: dd/mm/yyyy HH:MM:SS.
I have it except there are spaces where the "/" are. I need the / displayed in the output
 
Here is the code I am using
  CASE
      When vSF.ModifiedDate is Null then '""'
      Else ('"' + ltrim(convert(char(20), vSF.ModifiedDate,13)) + '"')
 END,

So I imagine I have to combine it with a formatting string of some sort?

Use :
CONVERT(char(10), ModifiedDate, 103) + ' ' + CONVERT(char(8), ModifiedDate, 108)

Try:
CONVERT(NVARCHAR, vSF.ModifiedDate, 131)

So your code would look like this:
CASE
      When vSF.ModifiedDate is Null then '""'
      Else ('"' + CONVERT(char(10), vSF.ModifiedDate, 103) + ' ' + CONVERT(char(8), vSF.ModifiedDate, 108) + '"')
END,

Also, 14 has a 2 digits for the year and MMM for the month, which is not the same as yours: dd/mm/yyyy HH:MM:SS

The exact final soulution ended up as:

["Access Date"]=
CASE
                When vSF.ModifiedDate is Null then '""'
                Else ('"' + ltrim (CONVERT(char(10), vSF.ModifiedDate,103)) + ' ' + (CONVERT(char(8),vSF.ModifiedDate, 108))+ '"')
END,
