Dear Ms Stafford,

Thank you for your FOI request:

2010 for Allied Health Professions was £45,473 (laboratories and

I trust this is to your satisfaction. However, under the Freedom of

remain dissatisfied with this, you then have the right to make a formal
appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further advice
or assistance.
