Dear Foi-Requests(westernisleshealthboard) (NHS WESTERN ISLES),

Thank you for this response. To clarify, I am looking for separate median pay figures for men and women across the whole organisation, not just figures for the board.

I'd be grateful if you could supply this figure.

Yours sincerely,

Ally Tibbitt
