Dear Mr Fryer

 

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 3^rd February 2020 .  Your request has been
given the Reference Number ANHSFT REF 4723. 

 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is 2^nd March  2020.   We will try to respond to
you before this date and we will contact you if we envisage delays or if
we need more information from you.

 

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the “public interest” in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

 

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the “appropriate cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request or we can charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  In that case you would need to pay the fee before we
proceeded with your request,  but we will offer assistance and advise you
if, by modifying your request, we could provide you with some non-exempt
or free of charge information.

 

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

 

With kind regards

Dear Mr Fryer

 

Further to your application to access information under the Freedom of
Information Act (ANHSFT REF. 4723) please find our response below. Please
accept my apologies for our late reply.

 

How many patients have received an iron infusion in the last 12 months? -
 419

 

How many patients have been treated with Monofer NIL and how many with
Ferinject -   418?

 

What was the average weight of these patients? – Information not centrally
recorded.

 

How many patients required more than 1 gram of iron?  - Not clear from
Pharmacy data. Dose over 1gram in a single dose, or requiring multiple
administration events? See additional text below.

 

How many nurses and for what days and hours are your Iron infusion clinics
available? – We don't hold recorded information to answer this question
but our clinical staff have provided as much detail as they can below.

We have the Friday morning iron clinic on HODU where the CNS gives
treatment.  There are a maximum 6 patients between the hours of 9 -12
generally (30 min apt slots). Patients who don't/can't attend on a Friday
fall into the 'HODU' numbers which can be any other weekday - exact
numbers can vary.  

 

ACU do administer Ferinject infusions. We believe Pre-op Ferinject is also
given on the Ward.   We don't currently use Monofer, we only use Ferinject
and very occasionally Venofer.

Data re average dosage would have to be calculated by looking at
individual patient records and this would take us far beyond the time/cost
limit under the Act.   Patients of a small weight (<50kg) may also need
two doses as the max does is 20mg/kg at one time. The dosage is calculated
based on patient weight (35 - 70kg or 70kg and above) and the latest
haemoglobin level.

We trust you find our response helpful.  If you feel we are not complying
with our publication scheme, you feel your request has not been properly
handled, or you are dissatisfied, you can write within 40 working days to
Brendan Brown, Chief Executive at the address below to request a review. 
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner under
section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 if you are dissatisfied
with the outcome of that review.

 

Unless identified as another party's copyright, you may use and re-use the
information we have provided (not including logos or photographs), free of
charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government
Licence which can be viewed via the link below.
