Distances to the possible new hospital facility

Alan Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Hywel Dda University Health Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Waiting for an internal review by Hywel Dda University Health Board of their handling of this request.

Dear Hywel Dda University Health Board,

In your review of the recent consultation about major reformation of the facilities you manage you have indicated that you would like to provide a major new hospital in an area east of Pembrokeshire. Can you supply a list of all the LSOA’s that are NOT in Pembrokeshire but are in your ‘patch’ and their distances in kilometres, by road, to the centre of that zone as you currently foresee it. Please include not only the LSOA names but also their codes and the ordnance survey grid reference of each of their population centroids.

Additionally will you also include the distance, by road, from those population centroids to Withybush hospital.

Can you please supply this information in an Open Source spreadsheet format. If you are unable to supply the information in an Open Source (Libre Office?) format please use an older Microsoft Excel format that will be easier to convert accurately.

Yours faithfully,

Alan Taylor

Dear FOI HywelDda (Hywel Dda UHB - Freedom of Information),

I am disappointed to hear that you intend to lump three different request for information into a single F.o.I. request. I agree that all three requests have a similar theme in that they all refer to distances but that does not detract from the fact that all three requests are for information about differing routes and differing destinations. I ask that you reconsider your response and reply to each request individually.

Yours sincerely,

Alan Taylor
