Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Request.

My request relates to number of ‘hymen reconstruction surgeries’ offered on the NHS and the demographics of patients who receive this surgery. Could you please tell me for the last five years (Jan 14-Jan 19):
+How many surgeries were performed per year.
+What the age of the patients were
+What the cost was per year for these procedures.
+The ethnicity and religion of the patients, if information held.
+Any guidance you hold on this procedure within your organisation or notes you feel happy to share.

Please share this in either PDF or Excel format.

If there is an issue with my request please advise how to remedy it prior to the 21 day deadline.

You can reach me on [Number Removed].

Yours faithfully,

Poppy Damon

Hello Poppy,

As we are an ambulance trust, this FOI is not really relevant for us and I can confirm that we do not perform hymen reconstruction surgeries.

Kind regards
