Dear Elizabeth Re: Official Information Act Request CDHB/G 9164
Thank you for your request under the Official Information Act (1982), dated 16 July 2015 and
received today requesting the following information.
How many patients in the last 15 years have been misdiagnosed resulting in their death? Or
otherwise had been prevented with better medical advice from this hospital in particular
As required under the Official Information Act (1982), the Canterbury District Health Board will
respond to your request within 20 working days. You should therefore receive a response on or
before 14 August 2015.
If a large amount of information has been requested or if the Canterbury District Health Board needs
to consult in order to make a decision, we may need to extend this date (this is provided for in
section 15A of the Act). We will advise you if such an extension is necessary.
