Dear Nia Jones,

Could you please supply me with the E mail address that should be contacted ?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Carratt

Apologies it should have been in the original e-mail but seems to have
been missed off. I will try again and here it is for you:
[email address]

I have checked the website for the National Pulic Health Service and
they produce surveilance reports for each of the NHS Trusts in Wales.
For Bronglais Hospital they would have been a part of Ceredigion & Mid
Wales NHS Trust until 31 March 2008 and they are now aprt of the Hywel
Dda NHS Trust. Surveilance reports up tp 31 June 2008 are available
from the National Public Health Services under the option for Healthcare
Associated Infections option and reports for different period from 1
January 2005 up until 31 March 2008 are available. You will need to go
for the option for Ceredigion & Mid Wales NHS Trust which I know is
confusing as they are now merged with two other Trusts but this will
give you figures for Bronglais Hospital. The website address is:
http://www.nphs.wales.nhs.uk/

If you need anything else please do not hesitate to get in touch and
apologies for not responding sooner and I hope that the above
information is useful to you.

Regards
