FOI – 000003 CTCL (cutaneous T-cell lymphoma) treatment centres

Published on 18 January 2022

Date received 06 Jan 2022 – Date responded 18 Jan 2022

Request

To Whom It May Concern,

I work for a digital agency partnering with Kyowa Kirin (pharma group) to deliver an interactive map hosted on Lymphoma Action’s charity website. The map will contain a list of CTCL (cutaneous T-cell lymphoma) treatment centres for dermatologists to refer their patients to.

The information we need to produce this map is as follows:

  • A full list of NHS centres in Scotland that provide CTCL treatment
  • Which type of treatment they provide (either TSEB, ECP, or both)
  • Names of the clinicians that provide the treatment at each centre

I would like to request this information is provided to us for use in the map. I would prefer to receive this information in an electronic format, by the 4th February 2022.

Response

Freedom of Information Reference: FOI-2022-000003 – CTCL (cutaneous T-cell lymphoma) treatment centres I refer to your freedom of information request which we received on 06 January 2022 requesting the following information.

I can advise you that we have now completed the search of our records and can provide you with the following information:

  1. A full list of NHS centres in Scotland that provide CTCL treatment Under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, National Services Division (NSD) of NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) does not require to provide information if it does not hold that information.

  2. Which type of treatment they provide (either TSEB, ECP, or both) Under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, National Services Division (NSD) of NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) does not require to provide information if it does not hold that information.

  3. Names of the clinicians that provide the treatment at each centre Under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, National Services Division (NSD) of NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) does not require to provide information if it does not hold that information.

NSS has no responsibility for the CTCL service, however I would suggest that you contact the following boards NHS Grampian, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and NHS Lothian who may provide this service.

I trust you will find the information of assistance and if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of how we have dealt with your request you can make representations to us asking us to review the handling of your request.
