Dear Ms Goates,


Information Request – Haemato-oncology departments in NHS hospitals in


I am writing with regard to your Freedom of Information request on 17
February 2016 that was received by NHS Health Scotland on the same day, in
which you ask the following:


“Please could you provide me with a complete list of NHS hospitals in
Scotland that have a Haemato-oncology department”


Unfortunately we are unable to help you with your request.  Although NHS
Health Scotland is a part of the NHS in Scotland, we do not provide health
services directly to the public and we have no role in monitoring or
providing the information that you are looking for. Our role is to work
with a range of organisations including other NHS Boards, local
government, the third sector and employers to help them use knowledge
about what works to improve the health of people in Scotland.    [1]This
link describes the different organisations that make up the NHS in


I’d like to assist you as much as I am able to, and therefore I suggest
that you may find it helpful to redirect your request to the 14 regional
Health Boards in Scotland for local area information, and in this case
details can be found here


I trust that this answers your query.  However, if for any reason you are
not satisfied with our response, you do have the right to ask the Chief
Executive to review our response. You should do this within 40 working
days of receipt of this letter and in a recordable format (letter, email,
audio tape etc). The Chief Executive will consider your query, consulting
with others as necessary, and will respond to you within 20 working days.


I hope that this is of help to you.


Yours sincerely
