Dear Jan

Thank you for your request for official information, ref: H201903717
received on 29 May 2019 requesting:

"I am seeking information on the number of diagnosed and treated cases of
tumours to the 4th ventricle of the brain in the last ten years"

Ministry to propose refinement scope
The request as it is currently worded is for a very large volume of
information and may be refused under section 18(f) of the Official
Information Act 1982, because the information requested cannot be made
available without substantial collation or research.

It has been proposed to further refine your request, which in turn may
provide you with information you seek.

        "The Ministry can provide information on the number of
hospitalisations based on this cancer being the primary diagnosis."

In regards to this part of your request:

        " ... information on the number of...  treated cases of tumours to
the 4th ventricle of the brain in the last ten years."

Some cancer treatments do not require admission to hospital
(chemotherapy/radiotherapy will be outpatient at some DHBs and inpatient
at others), the the outpatient data that the Ministry holds, does not
include diagnosis information. Therefore we would not be able to provide
accurate information for this part of your request.
Please amend or clarify this part of your request in a manner which the
Ministry could provide information.

If you wish to discuss this purposed refinement further please feel free
to do so.

If you are happy with this purposed refinement please reply indicating
that you agree to new scope.

Kind regards,

OIA Services
