Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

What forms of Haemotherapy are legally allowed in the UK?
What forms of Haemotherapy are used by the NHS?
Does NICE come under the DHSC for the purposes of FOI?

Yours faithfully,

Michael Price

Dear Mr Price,
 
Thank you for your correspondence of 7 December about haemotherapy.  I
have been asked to reply.

 

The Freedom of Information Act only applies to recorded information such
as paper or electronic archive material.  As your correspondence asked for
general information, rather than requesting recorded information or
documentation, it did not fall under the provisions of the Act.

The Department of Health and Social Care does not hold information
relating to haemotherapy treatments and so is unable to answer your
enquiry.  Instead, I would recommend contacting the National Institute for
Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which may be able to assist you.  Its
contact details are:

 

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

10 Spring Gardens

London SW1A 2BU

 

Tel: +44 (0) 300 323 0140

Email: [email address]

 

NICE is a non-departmental public body that is accountable to, but
independent from, the Department of Health and Social Care.  Therefore, it
is responsible for processing its own freedom of information requests.

 

I am sorry I cannot be more directly helpful.

Yours sincerely,
 
Charlotte Weatherill
