Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust says it HASN'T been told not to destroy records
In response to a Freedom of Information request made by Factor 8, the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust (which encompasses the Lewisham Hospital Haemophilia Centre) has said today that:
Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust have received no correspondence, notices and instructions from the Infected Blood Inquiry.
It should also be noted that our original request contained questions wide enough in scope to cover any notice which may have come from NHS England, UKHCDO or any other source and so we can reliably assume that the Trust has not received or is not aware of any instruction to preserve documents and/or medical records relevant to the Infected Blood Inquiry.
Factor 8 has informed the Infected Blood Inquiry.
