Dear Ms O'Donnell,

 

Thank you for your request.

Q.  I would like to find out the number of people diagnosed with
neutropenic sepsis in the past 5 years and also the number of deaths in
the past 5 years as a result of neutropenic sepsis?

A. The attached table provides the number of patients diagnosed with
neutropenic sepsis.  We do not hold information regarding deaths. As we do
not hold this information it is classed as an exclusion under section 17
(1) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

I trust this is to your satisfaction. However, under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 if you are dissatisfied with our response
you are entitled to request a review. A request for a review must be made
in writing to Dr Wai-yin Hatton, Chief Executive, NHS Ayrshire & Arran,
Eglinton House, Ailsa Hospital, Dalmellington Road, Ayr KA6 6AB, no later
than 40 working days from 27 October 2011. You must provide your name, an
address for correspondence, details of your original request and say why
you want a review. If our decision is unchanged following a review and you
remain dissatisfied with this, you then have the right to make a formal
appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further advice
or assistance.

 

Kind regards,

 

Ann
