Information Requested:

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to request the following data:
•    The number of oral cancer referrals received by hospitals in your Trust between January 2017 and the most recent completed month that is available (most likely July or August 2023).    I also request this data be presented as monthly figures. 


Information provided for the answer:

Thank you for your recent request dated 6th September 2023.

Public Health Wales do not hold this information. Public Health Wales is the public health service for Wales and as such is an independent NHS Trust. As an organisation we have no jurisdiction over the activities of Health Boards and other NHS Trusts, and frequently do not have access to the data that they produce.

I have provided contact details for each Health Board and Velindre University NHS Trust below, you would need to contact them individually for their information.


Aneurin Bevan University Health Board

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board

Swansea Bay University Health Board

Hywel Dda University Health Board

Powys Teaching Health Board

Velindre University NHS Trust

Freedom of information - Velindre University NHS Trust

I am very sorry we cannot help on this occasion.
