Dear Charlie,

Thank you for your request made under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

Please treat this email as our acknowledgement of your request. We have allocated reference 85-20 to your request.

I am confirming receipt and for you to note that we will provide the information (where available) within the prescribed timescales. However, due to the current environment and the pressures experienced by the NHS in Wales due to the pandemic, there is a chance that the request will take longer to respond to due to those pressures. The NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership (NWSSP) endeavours to provide timely responses whenever possible but am informing you of the potential lateness however rare but does happen from time to time.

I will be back to you as soon as I have a response to share with you.

Regards,

Tim Knifton, MSc Gwybodeg Iechyd/Health Informatics
