I would like to request the following information under the Freedom Information Act 2000:
I am investigating requests for the inspection of a person's hymen for the purpose of verifying whether they have had 
sexual intercourse. 
1. How many people have received a hymen inspection for this purpose since 2015?
2. How many people have requested to have a hymen inspection for this purpose since 2015?
Please provide the information electronically in a spreadsheet format.
Examinations would not be done for the reasons in questions 1 & 2.
There is no clinical coding for examination of the hymen so even if an examination was carried out for any other 
reasons the Trust would not able to run a report for this information.
