From: moshe livne

Dear Canterbury District Health Board,

I would like to have a list of surgical procedures over the last 5 years by clinical code along with the number of complications or damages caused by each procedure. I would also like to have the overall number of procedure of each procedure.

If possible, I would like to have the results electronically as a csv, with format similar to:
Clinical_code, Clinical_code_description, Total, Pneumonia, Cardiac, Infection....
32800,Repair lung hernia through chest wall, 1298, 3, 4, 1....

This is just an example to show the data format I expect.

Yours faithfully,
Moshe Livne [email address]

Dear Mr Livne,

 

While we are able to supply the information you have requested, this will
entail the provision of several thousand procedure codes and events. 

 

Is there something more specific that you are looking for?

Kind regards

Thank you Kathleen for your prompt reply.
No, I am not looking for specific information. My aim is to provide a more
informed (free) way for people to assess risks of going into procedures.
I might provide this as a searchable database, so the number of procedures
is not really of consequence.
Best regards,
Moshe
