Dear Aneurin Bevan University Health Board,

I write about an FOI request on nursing and midwifery and would be grateful if you could answer the following questions:

1. How many nurses and midwives were on gardening leave in 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20?
2. How many nurses and midwives have been referred to the Nursing and Midwifery Council in the above years?
3. How many nurses and midwives have been on report or undergone disciplinary action in the above years?
4. How many babies were delivered by midwives who were on report or undergoing disciplinary action in the above years?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Dear Mr ap Dafydd,

Following your Freedom of Information request relating to nursing and midwifery (FOI 20-259), I have sent this request to the relevant department to provide any of the information which they are able to. However, they have asked if you could clarify what is meant by "on report" as it is not a term used within the Health Board.

I look forward to hearing from you so that we can progress with the response.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr ap Dafydd,

Since I sent my email on 11 August, another part of the team has asked for further clarification, as detailed below:

We do refer nurses who do not directly work for us, e.g. agency nurses; would you like this information?
Do you want to know of nurses who self-refer, and also the number of nurses who are referred through a third party?

I look forward to hearing from you regarding the clarification required in order that we can provide you with the information you have requested.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Rona Button (Aneurin Bevan UHB - Corporate Services),

Thank you for your emails and I apologise for the delay in my reply. If you could just include nurses which were directly employed by the Board, that would be great. Also, by "on report" I mean subject to a complaint or disciplinary proceedings.

Yours sincerely,

Bleddyn ap Dafydd
