Dear FOI HywelDda (Hywel Dda UHB - Freedom of Information),

I asked "Can you please tell me how many lipoedema surgeons there are in Wales that are qualified to carry out micro cannula tumescent liposuction on lipoedema patients.

Please provide names and which hospitals they work in?"

you have stated that you have until the 18th February to supply the information and have indicated that you have attached a leaflet giving guidance on your procedure for managing requests for information that is covered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 - yet there is no such leaflet attached. I do not require the leaflet just the information requested.

If there are NO qualified lipoedema surgeon in Wales that are qualified to carry out micro cannula tumescent liposuction on lipoedema patients then please just state this.

Dr Munnoch is the one and only surgeon that is qualified to do this surgery in Scotland, i am trying to establish if Wales is the same with just one qualified surgeon if if we don;t even have that.

If it is true that there are NO qualified lipoedema surgeons in wales then can you please provide instead copies of any proposals that look to rectify the situation

I look forward to you immediate response

Yours sincerely,

angie of the elder family
