Dear Borders NHS Board,
I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
Please send me:
- The number of patients who contracted sepsis postpartum - up to 10 days post birth - in each of the last 7 years: 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, broken down by:
- hospital (inc which hospital the patient gave birth in) or home birth
- method of delivery, e.g c section or vaginal.
I would prefer to receive this data electronically in an excel or csv format.
If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.
If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.
I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your recent FOI enquiry, we will reply promptly and in any event, a response will be sent no later than 30 September 2019.
