Dear Loraine,

Please can you try this link instead to see the questions (where they can also be downloaded)? https://tinyurl.com/y9o9syqu

And the survey for replying is here: https://tinyurl.com/yarxbu3e

I think the links were getting compressed before and not working properly.
Otherwise, I can email the questions to you.

Many thanks,

Dear Martin

I need to escalate to the relevant department to complete and return to me, therefore a word document or list of questions on email would be really helpful. It makes it easier for them to complete.

Many thanks

Dear Loraine,

Many thanks for the response. Can I clarify that your last answer:

Yes, however we do have have any resources for submitting this type of data. We feel a national registry would be important

Should actually read:

Yes, however we do NOT have any resources for submitting this type of data. We feel a national registry would be important

Many thanks
