Dear Dr Jones

 

I write further to previous correspondence. Please find a spreadsheet of
the number of doctors who held specialist registration for orthopaedic
surgery in 2014.

 

Of those who are still on the register, we have provided the most accurate
current location we have as of 19 April 2018.  

 

In terms of the numbers for 2014, are you principally interested in where
they worked or resided? If you let me know this I can see what data I can
gather. I can probably provide data split by registered address or by
links with a designated body.

 

Kind Regards

 

Matt
