Dear Andy

Further to my recent acknowledgement we have no centrally recorded information of A&E attendances of hospital admission related to the vaping of the substances requested for the last 5 years. Please note that this information was obtained from a word search of our A&E system as there is no WHO ICD code for this condition currently.

Regards
