Dear Sir or Madam,
Could I obtain the number of people who were diagnosed with
chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia and the number of deaths
due to chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia in 2008?
Thank you for your email which has been received via the Shrewsbury and
Telford Hospital NHS Trust website. I have forwarded your request on to
our Freedom of Information lead.

Can you just clarify for me:
Chemotherapy is given to Cancer patient's but, also patients with certain
conditions requiring drug therapy such as antibiotic's that are
'chemicals' and classified as chemotherapy. Do you want all of these? or
just specifically Ca patient's treated with chemo?
Also, when we run a query on these many of the patient's are having this
as a 'planned course' so the numbers could be 5,000 but because some
patient's are having it many times the number can be 1,000. Which would
you like the total of patient's receiving the treatment or the number of
times (events) chemotherapy is administered.
Hope that makes sense !
