Thank you for your request dated 9th January 2024. 


Public Health Wales does not use infant formula milk. 


Public Health Wales is the public health service for Wales and as such is an independent NHS Trust. Therefore, do not have access to this information. As an organisation we have no jurisdiction over the activities of Health Boards and other NHS Wales organisations, and frequently do not have access to the data that they produce.  I have provided contact details for each Health Board below as they may hold this information, you would need to contact them individually for the information they hold.  


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 


I am sorry we cannot help on this occasion.
