Dear Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust,

Please could you confirm if there is a medicine advisory/steering/review group within the hospital? If so could you please provide the minutes of the meetings from Jan 2013 through to the current time?

Specifically for anticoagulation within the hospital is there a committee (often referred to as a thrombosis committee) and if so again could I please request the minutes for any meetings from January 2013 through to the current time?

Yours faithfully,

Lisa Chapman

Dear FOI (ROYAL CORNWALL HOSPITALS NHS TRUST),

Thank you for your email. Does this refer to 'medication' advisory/steering/review group or do you require information relating to 'Medicine' as a specialty?

It is the former - i.e for any medication within the hospital is there a advisory/steering/review group (often referred to as a drugs an therapeutic committee.

Does that clarify this question?

Yours sincerely,

Lisa Chapman
