Dear Aneurin Bevan University Health Board,

Can you please tell me how many lipoedema surgeons there are in Wales that are qualified to carry out micro cannula tumescent liposuction on lipoedema patients.

Please provide names and which hospitals they work in?

If there are NO qualified lipoedema surgeon in Wales that are qualified to carry out micro cannula tumescent liposuction on lipoedema patients then please just state this.

Dr Munnoch is the one and only surgeon that is qualified to do this surgery in Scotland, i am trying to establish if Wales is the same with just one qualified surgeon or if we don't even have that.

If it is true that there are NO qualified lipoedema surgeons in wales then can you please provide instead copies of any proposals that look to rectify the situation

Yours faithfully,
