Count of t2-t3 bladder cancers treated with TURBT alone.

Jack Whitehead made this Official Information request to MidCentral District Health Board

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Jack Whitehead to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Jack Whitehead

Dear MidCentral District Health Board,

For bladder cancer patients in 2016, how many of those staged prior to treatment as likely T2-T3 were initially treated by transurethral resection of the tumor ?

I use "staged" to cover the assessment that determined the choice of treatment, however tentative and however informal the assessment may have been.

My own case establishes an N of at least one. This is documented in the letter of 2 Feb 2017 from Mr John Chrisp to my GP. Another urologist, Mr Chemasle, told me that he would have done exactly the same. The purpose of this request is to determine whether my case is an instance of a policy.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Whitehead (ERE6201)

Dear Ms Horgan

Thank you for your response.

You can readily get the information by asking each of the four consultant urologists on staff at the time for their individual count. With the exception of Mr Chrisp, the answer will almost certainly be zero; for Mr Chrisp we are trying to determine whether the count is N=1 or N>1 and if the latter to establish an approximate count.

While I am happy to discuss best practice for bladder cancer patients, it cannot substitute for the fulfillment of this OIA request. I have of course done the necessary reading.

Yours sincerely,

Jack Whitehead

Dear Ms Hogan,

Given that the information I requested is readily available, it should have been supplied by 29 April.

Would you please give me an immediate update on what action you have taken since my email of 28 April. If the consultants have been asked for the information and not yet provided it, then the CEO needs to intervene to remind them of their legal duty.

Yours sincerely,

Jack Whitehead
