Dear Robin Ellis


Thanks for your email of yesterday’s date.


Having reviewed the questions and the information requested, we are unable
to respond, as we are not a health care provider.  The NWCHC is an
independent statutory body that represents the interests of the patient
and the public in the NHS in Wales.  We believe that your request should
have been made to the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, to which
the NWCHC is not affiliated, their address for Freedom of Information
requests is: [1][email address].


With kind regards

Sue Irlam
