Request

The question is around "Community ostomy expenditure which includes expenditure with appliance, accessory and prescription costs".  It may be referred at your end as "Community Stoma Expenditure" or "Primary Care Stoma expenditure in NHS Scotland" or "NHSS Ostomy spend in community".  They will all be the same figures but even the same NHS Scotland paper can reference the same thing in four different ways.

  1. I request the Stoma Community Expenditure Figures in Scotland for the following years (2011/12, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21).
  2. I would also request the total expenditure for each year broken down as follows: Amount for

Stoma Appliances,

Stoma Accessories.

 Appliance Contractor dispensing, customisation & delivery fees.
