Good morning Paul

I hope this email finds you well. Thank you for sending through your OIA request recently. This has gone through to our teams for a response and they have asked for clarification on your request.

Could you please answer the following:

- Is this inpatient 'visits' or outpatient 'visits' or both??
- Does this include booked diagnostic procedures (ETT, ECHO, TOE, angios etc) in our cardiology suite?
- Is this just referring to ED presentations??
- Is this referring to ward admissions?
- Adult or paediatric populations?

Please response as soon as possible so we can commence collecting the correct data for you.

Good morning Paul

Just following up from my email of 17 February 2022 with our query for clarification in regards to your OIA. Could you please let me know the answer to the queries below; unfortunately we cannot respond to your OIA unless we have this clarification and as such this OIA is currently on hold.

Once we do have a response from you, we will also require an extension please as I am aware we will not be able to meet the initial OIA request response date. If you no longer require this information from Taranaki DHB, could you kindly let us know.

Look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
