Dear Ms Damon,

In January 2019, we responded to a Freedom of Information request for the number of these procedures performed at this trust over the previous four years. The total was zero - i.e. none.

Will you accept this as a response to your request, or do you want us to check the number which may have taken place since the beginning of this year?

With best regards,

Alan Larn.
