Welfare Officer made this Freedom of Information request to Hywel Dda University Health Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hywel Dda Local Health Board,

I've divided my questions into 3 sections.

Expansion of services:

Following your withdrawal of Aberystwyth University's Sexual Health Clinic last year, I'm writing to request a copy of your strategy for Sexual Health Services for the Aberystwyth Area.

North Road Clinic:

Does the Health Board have intentions of expanding the current sexual health services at North Road Clinic, in particular the GUM clinic element, in light of the withdrawal of the service at the University?

Rhiannon Ward:

With regards to Bronglais Hospital services, does the Health Board have any intentions of closing the Rhiannon Ward?

Yours faithfully,

Welfare Officer

Dear Sir/Madam

Unfortunately I am unable to deal with your request until I receive a name from you. I only currently have Welfare Officer.

Under section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) it indicates that the real name of the applicant should be used when requesting information and not any other name, for example, a pseudonym otherwise the request cannot be treated as a valid request for information.

Under s16 please not it will not affect any decisions about the disclosure of information but may affect your right to appeal if you should decide to at a later date.

Please note this FOI request will not proceed until this information is sent to me.

Regards

Karen Morris
