Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust,

I would be pleased if you could provide your policies and procedures in relation to elective caesarean sections, both where there is medical need, and where there is not.

I would also be greatful if you could provide information on how somebody would request this procedure.

Finally I would like details of
1. The number of elective caesarean sections requested within the last year, if possible divided into those where there were relevant medical conditions, and those that were purely elective.
2. The number of these that were accepted and denied, divided into the same categories as above.
3. The average stage in gestation that these were carried out.

Yours faithfully,

JW Burke
