Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Public Health Wales,

I refer to the very recent U-turn on aligning your service to the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 by allowing face mask exempt donors to your blood donation sessions. I wish to see all evidence that has been presented to PHW regarding new virus strains and wish to know if this has been scrutinised.

Yours faithfully,

Nicola Lund

Freedom of Information request - Evidence for the U-turn on blood donors
being denied entry to donor sessions if mask exempt

Dear Public Health Wales,

I refer to the very recent U-turn on aligning your service to the
requirements of the Equality Act 2010 by allowing face mask exempt donors
to your blood donation sessions. I wish to see all evidence that has been
presented to PHW regarding new virus strains and wish to know if this has
been scrutinised.

 

Dear Anita Weir (Public Health Wales - No. 2 Capital Quarter),

I have waited a further three weeks beyond the 20 working days legal requirement for receiving a response.
Please can you explain why there is a delay and if you do not hold this information I should be most grateful to be told this definitively.

Yours sincerely,

Nicola Lund
