Dear King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

I am writing to request under the freedom of information act any/all copies of administrative correspondence, letters and/or any other documentation including minutes of meetings etc that mention or relate to:

HIV / AIDS or Hepatitis, AND, Haemophilia / Haemophiliacs during the period January 1st 1988 – December 31st 1991.

Please note that I am NOT requesting patient medical records which would obviously be exempt, but administrative correspondence, letters and/or any other documentation including minutes of meetings etc.
