Dear Hywel Dda University Health Board,

I would be grateful if you could give me some information on the following questions about cancelled operations.

1. In the last four years (2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19), how many operations were cancelled at the Health Board's request and through no fault of the patient?

2. If possible, can you break these down by service or speciality?

Yours faithfully,

Bleddyn ap Dafydd
