Dear Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board,

I write about a Freedom of Information request on District Nurses working in GP surgeries in your Board's area. If possible, I would be grateful if you could answer the following questions please:

1. Who are district nurses answerable to - the Health Board or the GP?
2. How many district nurses are currently on rota within your health board area - both FT and PT?
3. What is the chain of command with regard to district nurses working in GP clusters?
4. What procedures do district nurses have to follow when responding to emergency care in their area?
5. Can individual GPs and surgeries ask for district nurses to attend emergency care?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Bleddyn ap Dafydd
