Dear Hilary,

Many thanks for your response. However, please can you send responses to the 'Inclusion criteria for active surveillance' table as the answers were missing (and not included in the protocol you attached).

Many thanks

Dear Dr Hansford

Please accept my apologies for that oversight.

However, I can confirm that the 'Inclusion criteria for active surveillance' is not applicable.

Martin Abrams (Prostate Cancer UK)

Dear Hilary,

Please can you explain why the inclusion criteria table is not applicable? The table is asking for information on which patients are considered for active surveillance (and then go onto the follow up protocol guideline which you already sent me for the West of Scotland).

Many thanks
Ali

Dear freedomofinformation (NHS FORTH VALLEY),
