The request was successful.

From: Amy S Van Wey Lovatt

Dear Ministry of Health Analytic Services,

I am respectfully requesting the total number of T-cell lymphomas which have been registered per year in New Zealand for the years ranging from 2000-2019, inclusive. Further to my request, would you please include the breakdown of type of of reported T-cell lymphoma for each of those years according to the WHO classifications at the time of registration, as well as whether they were designated as indolent or not.

I have reviewed the report titled, Selected Cancers 2015, 2016, 2017; however the number of cancer registrations for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma includes: C82 Follicular [nodular] non-Hodgkin lymphoma, C83 Diffuse non-Hodgkin lymphoma, C84 Peripheral and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, C85 Other and unspecified types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, C86 Other specified types of T/NK-cell lymphoma, C96 Other and unspecified malignant neoplasms of lymphoid, haematopoietic and related tissue. Further the only information regarding Hodgkin Lymphoma is code C81.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Kindest regards,
Amy S Van Wey Lovatt

Dear Ministry of Health,

Thank you very much for the information you have provided about the number of reported cases of t-cell lymphoma. This was wonderful.

Further to my request, would you be able to provide me with the number of cases, by type, reported by Waikato DHB for those years? I apologize for not including this question in my earlier request.

Thank you again for your help and for your very quick response.

Yours faithfully,

Amy S Van Wey Lovatt

Dear Ministry of Health,

I am writing to express my gratitude to the employees who provided the detailed statistics regarding my OIA requests for the numbers of reported cases of T-cell lymphoma in NZ and the Waikato DHB. I also would like to thank them for processing my requests so quickly. In their response, they also included very helpful information in anticipation of further related inquiries, which in my opinion demonstrates good judgment, excellent use time, and exceptional customer service.

Thank you again for your help.

Kindest Regards,
