Dear Kat (Bristol CCG),

Thanks for replying so promptly. Can I just clarify please, does the information provided mean that 12 places were purchased, 3 of which were used by colleagues from the Research Collaborative?

I wasn't sure from the information attached that seems to suggest the CCG purchased 12 places. Thanks,

Yours sincerely,

Dr George Julian
