Re: INTERNAL REVIEW - FOIA request re OUTPATIENT HYSTEROSCOPY

6 weeks on from my request for an Internal Review, please have you any news? It would be helpful to receive the information that you do already have, rather than wait longer. I'm conducting a nationwide survey, the results of which go to the RCOG.

Yours sincerely,
