Bariatric Surgery

Currently waiting for a response from Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee,

Please can I request a copy of what criteria a patient has to have to receive bariatric surgery in North Wales.
For example, If you are diabetic, BMI has to be above 40. Non diabetic, BMI over 50.

How many bariatric surgeries were done for each year from 2007 to present broken down to:-
Gastric Band, Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve

How many diabetics/non diabetics?
BMI over 40/50/60/70/80/90 etc?

Thanks
Yours faithfully,

Jenny Lace

Dear Ms Lace

 

Freedom of Information Request:  Our Reference   FOI19-05-004

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 13 May 2019,
regarding Bariatric Surgery.

 

WHSSC is expecting a response from Swansea Bay University Health Board
(SBUHB) with data addressing your FOI request very shortly; however, I
wanted to let you know that they have informed us that they can only
provide data going back to 2014. The information you requested dating back
to 2007 is held by the NHS Wales Informatics Service. That being the case,
although I can submit a separate request for the data, it might be quicker
if you went directly to the Informatics Service and put in a Freedom of
Information request for the additional information covering the years 2007
to 2014.

 

FOI requests can be sent directly to the Informatics Service here:
[1][email address]

 

My apologies for the confusion, but in light of the fact that WHSSC does
not hold this data, I thought it might be quicker if, rather than WHSSC
put in an FOI request to the Informatics Service, you make the request
directly.

 

I hope that this information is of use to you, and, with regard to the
remainder of your request, we will provide a full response very shortly.

 

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact
me directly.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Robert Ellis

Dear Ms Lace

As indicated previously, I have contacted the information provider seeking clarity on your enquiry. The information received to respond to your FOI came from the Surgical Specialities Team at Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB). With regard to your query, I have been informed that:
• Information regarding the split of procedure code (i.e, divided by type of procedure - Gastric Band, Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve) is available and will be provided shortly.
• Information around the number of diabetics/non-diabetics is not held with the Team; however, they are trying to establish if this information is saved and, if so, where it is saved. Further information on this, I hope, will be provided shortly.
• Information around BMI is recorded on the Welsh Patient Administration Systems (WPAS), however, it is a free text field and will need to be requested of the NHS Wales Informatics Service: [email address]
Or by post via:
NHS Wales Informatics Service, Tŷ Glan-yr-Afon, 21 Cowbridge Road East, Cardiff CF11 9AD

Any further updates I receive, I will forward to you immediately.

Thanks and kind regards
