 FOI 794 - Medical servicesWould you please explain why people can see a dentist but not a doctor particularly when a dentist unlike that doctor is more regularly in much closer contact with patients? Why is it acceptable for doctors’ surgeries to inform people they have to phone the surgery in order that their problem can be directed to the best doctor for dealing with the issue affecting that patient when it`s actually merely to get the patient to phone at which time they are given a date when a doctor (any doctor) will phone that patient three weeks later. Surely that`s deceit? It also happens in England so it` an arranged policy personally benefiting doctors and against the interest of the public in general who pay and have paid for a comprehensive service over a prolonged period of time. As Covid is mostly under control, why have medical services not returned to pre-Covid days particularly as you can eat in a caf, walk around mask less and Government Agencies have arranged regulation almost to a point of normality? In view of the fact doctors are not now attending surgeries and seeing patients daily, please inform me if doctors still receive the same substantial salaries albeit whilst not attending their surgeries. FOI 794 Medical services.docx Final Response

August
 FOI 792 Delta VariantI sent this request on the 12th of August and I haven’t even received an acknowledgement that my request had been received by you. Please spare me the lies that “you’re too busy dealing with the pandemic”. We know the “pandemic” is a FRAUD and Public Health Wales is as complicit in this deception as the government is. Surely you don’t need me to remind you that you are REQUIRED to respond within 20 working days? Therefore I expect a response to my FOIA request by 9th September. You won’t be able to continue to squirm your way out of this. The people are angry enough as it is and you’re just making things worse for yourselves. Once the truth is exposed (and it will be), PHW, PHE, The NHS, The Welsh Government, U.K. Government, police forces…..anyone who went along with these crimes against humanity - you are all done for. The people will never trust any of you again. I look forward to your response (or lack of - seems to be far more common nowadays) 1) Please provide scientific evidence of the existence of the alleged “Delta” variant? 2. Following the revelations that the current PCR and LFD tests cannot distinguish between covid and influenza, is there a diagnostic test that specifically identifies the alleged “Delta” variant? 3.

 FOI 780 - Cost Of Treatment - PTUHB As you are no doubt aware, Powys Teaching Health Board provides no General Hospital or A & E services, obliging patients to seek treatment some 40 miles distant in the city of Hereford. As public transport is not conducive to this function, patients are forced to use private means of transport which incurs exorbitant parking charges. It now transpires that a congestion charge is being imposed on entrants to Hereford City by vehicle None of these charges are currently made on visiting hospitals for treatment in Wales, therefore patients from Wales who are referred to Hereford Hospital are being unfairly burdened with cost due to failures in Welsh Health Provision. Under the provisions of the Freedom of Information act 2000, please provide the process by which patients can recover the above unfair costs caused by lack of adequate health provision or obtain exemption from such charges FOI 780 Powys HB .docx Final Response

It would also be helpful to be able to compare those numbers with similar data since March 2020. I note that Public Health England already publishes daily data on these topics.

 FOI 736 - Self disseminating vaccinesTHIS WAS CLOSED AFTER 1 MONTH DUE TO NO RESPONSE TO A CLARIFICATION REQUEST. I would like to make a Freedom of Information Request. Please can you inform me of the following: 1. I would like to know which of the currently available Covid vaccines are self-disseminating, if any. 2. I would also like to know if there are any self-disseminating covid vaccines currently being developed. 3. I would also like all records describing the isolation of a SARS-COV-2 (COVID_19) virus, directly from a sample taken from a diseased patient, where the patient sample was not first combined with any other source of genetic material (i.e. monkey kidney cells aka vero cells; liver cancer cells). Please note that I am using "isolation" in the every-day sense of the word: the act of separating a thing(s) from everything else. I am not requesting records where "isolation of SARS-COV-2" refers instead to: the culturing of something, or the performance of an amplification test (i.e. a PCR test), or the sequencing of something. To clarify, I am requesting all such records that are in the possession, custody or control of Public Health Wales (for example: downloaded to a computer, printed in hard copy, etc.).

 FOI 733 - DVLARequest that a copy of the investigation report by Rhondda Cynon Taf into a case of infectious disease at DVLA be shared with DVLA. I am aware that DVLA have previously requested this report from HSE but it has not, to date, been provided. You will be aware that as an employer, DVLA has health and safety duties and responsibilities, including those related to the risk of COVID-19 amongst its workforce. This includes a responsibility in relation to risk assessments, and appropriate review of those risk assessments. It is obviously important that DVLA has access to all pertinent information available so that it can fulfil those duties and responsibilities. There is a serious risk that DVLA will be unable, without sight of the report, to assess the information in it to enable it to consider how that information might impact on or engage those duties and responsibilities, particularly as to reviewing its risk assessments. I would therefore be grateful if the report can be provided as a matter of urgency: if Public Health Wales is unwilling to provide it, please could you let me know, as soon as possible, the reasons for that FOI 733 DVLA.pdf Final Response

 FOI 730 - Vaccine Information Both the Pfizer BNT162b2 mRNA Covid-19 vaccine and the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 Oxford/ AstraZeneca vaccine are novel drugs. Both drugs have only been approved for emergency use. The trials are ongoing, with the Pfizer trial not due for completion until January 31st, 2023 [i] and the Oxford/AstraZeneca trial not due for completion until February 14th, 2023. [ii] [Pfizer's timetable has since slipped to April 6th, 2023]. The NHS policy is “for consent to be valid, it must be voluntary and informed.” [iii] Given the novelty, rapid development and incomplete trial history of these interventions, consent is vital. For my consent to be first informed, and second voluntary, please can you answer the following: 1) I have had Covid-19. Please can you explain why I need a vaccine for something to which I have immunity? In anticipation of an answer saying we don’t know how long natural immunity will last a) how long does vaccine immunity last? and b) surely immunity to a virus is preferable to a message to try to replicate a spike protein? 2) The December 2020 publications reported 95% efficacy for BNT162b2 and 70% efficacy for ChAdOx1 nCoV-19. [iv] Please can you explain what efficacy means and the number of cases (positive PCR test and at least one symptom) that the 95% and 70% numbers were based on? 3) Please can you tell me (with sources) the Number Needed to Treat (NNT) and the Number Needed to Harm (NNH) for each vaccine? 4) Please can you tell me the safety profile for both vaccines after one, three and five years? 5) I understand that Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) is a/the reason that we have had human coronaviruses for 55 years and no vaccine in that time. [v] Please can you guarantee that ADE cannot happen with either of the vaccines you are offering me? 6) The vaccines try to introduce the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein into our body. Recent peer-reviewed literature reports that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein “may affect the cells of systemic and coronary vasculatures, eliciting other cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease, systemic hypertension, and stroke.” [vi] Please can you guarantee that this cannot and will not happen? 7) Given that the vaccine manufacturers have indemnity from providing compensation if something goes wrong, please can you confirm that I can sue the board and individual members directly, with unlimited liability, if I am harmed in any way? FOI 730 Vaccine Information  .docx Final Response

We have business insurance cover for the Salon with ***** who as you may well be aware have been going through an appeal at the Supreme court fighting against paying out on Business Interruption included in the policies of many business owners like us. They have told us we have to provide evidence of an occurrence of Corona Virus Covid-19 within a One Mile radius of our premises before the national lockdown in March 2020.

We have tried to find evidence of this by asking our clients, searching through local Facebook and Twitter feeds, local press material, asking local GP’s as well as talking to and researching statistical data available from the Local Authority, ONS and the FCA as well as Public Health Wales. The information available within the public domain doesn’t seem to go back prior to the 1st National lockdown in March 2020 which is what we have to provide.

 FOI 692 - Covid DashboardI have been monitoring daily Covid-19 data, as provided by PHW, using simple Excel spread sheets, (as a Welsh resident and out of personal interest). I have noticed that there is always appears to be a discrepancy between the figures published when compared across the tables. EG 1 The Local Authorities Table cases updated and published 08 March 2021 12:00 and qualified “Data correct as of: 7 Mar 2021 09:00”. 1. The data set “Cases Reported today”; can you please confirm what date this daily figure relates to? (As above assumed to be 06/03/2021). 2. The data set “Week 2021,09 (01 Mar – 07 Mar)”; on the stated criteria, “Data correct as of: 7 Mar 2021 09:00” how can this set include any relevant data of the 07/03/21? 3. Does this data therefore apply to the 7 days 28 Feb to 6 Mar or is data being drawn from 7 Mar 2021 contrary to the stated criteria? 4. Referring again to “Week,09 (01 Mar – 07 Mar)” if the 7 sets of individual figures issued daily as “cases reported today” are recorded and then totalled on the publication of day 7, data (in this case as stated as 7th March, the total will always exceed the stated Wk XX figure by a substantial amount.(This applies to whichever bracketed 7 day selection is used as noted in 2 & 3 above). 5. As the data given is qualified as “Due to a lag in receiving data, cases sampled in recent days will not be fully reflected in these data ……” Referring to 4 & 5 above; a) how can the PHW Wk xx 7 day final total be less than the PHW individual daily data publised and b) why is the PHW daily case data downgraded in direct contradiction of the stated qualification as noted above. EG 2 Uptake of the first dose, by priority group. 1. Are you able to confirm that the group numbers stated are and accurate reflection of the data available to PHVW? 2. On the basis of the group numbers as stated in this table is the total of those groups relative to the 1st / 2nd phases prioritised up to 15th February, (and now from that date onward for the 50+ cohort), representative of the total group number as assumed? 3. On the basis of the group data published there appears to be a discrepancy when compared with the Wales target numbers published – are there other considerations? 4. Referring to the Qualifications applied to this table there appears to be contradictions; A) “The data in this table are deduplicated so that people should not be “double counted”, even if they appear in multiple priority groups.” B) “The groups in each line of the table are not mutually exclusive and people may appear in more than one…….. “ Is this in error, if so what is correct, or, are there other considerations that are unclear? I would appreciate some feedback on this, I find it disconcerting that I am unable to readily interpret this important information; it does raise issues of confidence and I am sure that I cannot be alone in experiencing these difficulties.

 FOI 686 - PCR, Vaccine, GymsFurther to a Freedom of Information Request, Wales is using 45 amplification cycles in the RT PCR testing despite mounting evidence that anything over 35 cycles is likely to give a false positive I would be grateful if you could explain the reasoning behind this decision that goes against real science and advice from the inventor of the test. More testing with a test not fit for purpose will simply give more positive results of perfectly healthy people who do not have the Virus being told to isolate unnecessarily. There is also mounting evidence that Ivermectin, Doxycycline and Zinc are saving lives, and other countries are now using these cheap drugs as standard and having positive outcomes for their hospitalized patients I would also be interested in why our Country is incredibly blinkered with an unknown unlicensed, emergency usage only Vaccine not tested on comorbidities, fertility and the elderly when there are alternative licenced drugs that have been FDA approved for over sixty years.Having read the Government information on the Pfizer/ Oxford Vaccine there is no data to suggest having the Vaccine will stop transmission or stop people being infected, it will only lesson symptoms, symptoms that the large majority recover from I have always taken my own health incredibly seriously, I'm a non smoker, eat healthy, weight in proportion and as an ex dancer I'm a regular at my gym attending classes 6 days a week.

 FOI 653 - Covid 19The first questions are about the PCR test. Q 1 a/ I would like to know how many times the PCR test is being cycled for. My research informs me that every cycle doubles the amplification. The virus is ever so small. At 18 cycles, anyone testing positive will certainly be likely to infect somebody else but by the time the PCR test is cycled to 35 cycles, it would not be possible to infect somebody, even sharing a small bed in a small unventilated room and being intimate for a few days. RNA found in the tests can be dead and so harmless or it can be potentially infective. The lower the number of cycles that a positive test is found at, the more likely it is that RNA picked up by the test is infectious. Q1b/ Have the PCR cycles varied over time, in how many times they are cycled. Q1c/ May the amount of times the test is cycled vary in the future? Q 2a/ It would be of great helpful interest to know what medical advice and what treatment is being given for those who have tested positive and are showing early symptoms. Q 2b/ What are the main treatments and recommendations given for those with covid who are at home? Q 2c/ What are the most common treatments used in hospitals? I would imagine that this would include nebulizers and oxygen. Do the nebulizers have H2O2 added to the saline? Which expectorants and mucolytics are used? Which drugs are used most commonly? Obviously, some people may have different treatments, depending on their previous conditions and some of these treatments may be used rarely. My questions are about the most common treatments for covid and for the common accompanying conditions. Please answer quickly and get back to me later with the answers which are more difficult and to expand these answers.  FOI 653 - PCR Testing and Treatment .pdf Final Response
 FOI 652 - Translation CostsI would like to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act regarding the following: 1. The spending per financial year on translation services (written) and interpreting services (oral) for your organisation over each of the following 5 financial years: 2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018, 2018/2019, 2019/2020, as well as the languages involved. Please do not include data regarding the spending on services for the deaf and blind (such as sign language interpreting or Braille). 2.

For example, I assume the total budget would be a few dozen or hundred million pounds per financial year. This is so that I can calculate the translation and interpreting spending as a percentage of the organisation's total budget (which I suspect would be around or under 0.1%). The data will be compiled, analysed and published on The above data and subsequent analysis will be part of my research and published on the above website. This means it would be available for free to anyone, so not used commercially. Can you please confirm this is OK from a copyright point of view?

The second tab, named Example, is just an example of what I am looking for in terms of the information provided.

 FOI 533 - SARS- Covid 2Dear Public Health Wales, The lockdown policies followed by WAG and Westminster are causing untold damage and debt. Please can you answer the following questions. Why are SARS-CoV-2 antibody levels flat or dropping across all age groups since May if the pandemic is still going? What percentage of the population is assumed to have had prior immunity to SARS-CoV-2 in the SAGE forecasting models? Why do 50% of household members not catch SARS-CoV-2 from infected persons with whom they live? Why have Japan and South Korea not had any serious outbreak if the human species has no prior immunity to SARS-CoV-2? What percentage of the population of the UK is assumed to be immune to COVID-19 (including prior immunity) as of this date? What percentage of those diagnosed with COVID-19 since July have developed antibodies to COVID-19, confirming the diagnosis? If 90%+ (SAGE Minutes: 21/09/20) of the population is still susceptible to SARS-CoV-2, why did the virus case numbers and deaths not double every 3-4 days throughout June, July and August, and indeed throughout the Autumn? Why have positive test results rocketed while numbers of symptomatic patients in the community and NHS triage data show they have flatlined since mid-September? Why are acute respiratory admissions through Accident & Emergency significantly below the normal for the time of year if the pandemic is still raging? Why are total hospital admissions, ITU occupancy and hospital oxygen consumption at or below normal levels for the time of year? What percentage of deaths labelled as being due to COVID-19 have had the diagnosis confirmed at post-mortem since July? Why are the regions of the country that have had excess deaths not the same regions that have supposed COVID-19 deaths, unlike in spring? Why has Liverpool testing by the Army failed to find COVID-19 in the community when they are supposedly at the centre of the alleged “second wave”? How is a 0.22% rate of diagnosed infection in the public in Liverpool to be reconciled with the ONS prediction of 2.3% infection rates in Liverpool on 11th November based on PCR testing? Why are much quicker lateral flow tests not being prioritised for hospital admissions to prevent the standard 24-48 hour delay with PCR results and ensure that those who are positive can be isolated to prevent hospital spread? Why aren’t all staff being tested by the lateral flow test to prevent the staffing crisis being caused by false positive PCR results? Do positive PCR tests for asymptomatic and symptomatic NHS staff, or anyone else, which result in them being required to self-isolate have confirmatory re-tests performed? Why is the country in lockdown when there are no excess hospital admissions, no excess intensive care bed use and no excess death rates (by date of occurrence) in the midst of an allegedly out of control, raging pandemic? Why are we in lockdown when the Government’s own Operation Cygnus pandemic plan stated that lockdown could only delay deaths by a few weeks at most? What evidence is there that lockdown has prevented more deaths than it has caused? It is vital these questions are answered. I thank you for your time and cooperation and look forward to your reply.

 FOI 523 - Guidance on the use of hand sanitiserWe would like to make a Freedom of Information request for the records held by your organisation from 1st January 2020 to the present day: • Any guidance, policies or other materials requiring the use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers to the explicit or implicit exclusion of alcohol-free hand sanitiser. • Any medical, scientific evidence relating to or comparing, the effectiveness of alcohol based hand sanitiser compared to alcohol free hand sanitiser. The aim of our request is to establish if there is any written record that might account for the widespread misunderstanding that only alcohol based hand sanitisers are appropriate for use in protection against SARS-COV2[which causes Covid-190 or any other microrganisms. The documents we are seeking, if they exist, might have been used or relied upon to advise external organisations on the use of alcohol based sanitisers over alcohol free sanitisers. For the avoidance of doubt we are not interested in any material relating to how hand sanitisers should be used generally or other generic hand hygiene advice except where this may indicate a bias against alcohol free products. In accordance with your duties under the legislation to respond quickly as possible and to assist enquirers, we would urge you to contact us urgently by email if there is any need to clarify any part of our request or if you feel we need to frame it differently to avoid any exemption. In processing our request, we also ask you to consider the following:- • We see no reason why any information would meet the standard of an absolute exemption. • Even if you decide that releasing this information would meet one of the non-absolute exemption, our strong view is that the public interest would require release. • If we feel our request has not been handled in line with the word and spirit of the legislation, we will ask for a review and potentially appeal to the ICO. FOI 523 - Alcohol Based Hand Sanitisers.pdf Final Response

It said it believes "a number of super-spreader events" had led to evidence of more cases of community transmission. The Cardigan schools will close for two weeks. It is not known for how long the schools in Pembrokeshire will be shut. In a letter, Ceredigion Council said seven schools and two nurseries would be closed until 7 December and pupils will be taught remotely. The affected schools include: • Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi • Ysgol Gynradd Aberteifi • Ysgol Gynradd Penparc • Ysgol Gynradd Aberporth • Ysgol Gynradd T.Llew Jones • Ysgol Gynradd Llechryd • Ysgol Gynradd Cenarth The Flying Start Nurseries in Cardigan and Aberporth will also shut, along with Cardigan library.

The specific statutory powers used under emergency legislation, or public health legislation, to close these schools and businesses. 2. A copy of the legal notice served on the schools and businesses. A copy of a single typical notice will suffice.

 FOI 519 - Covid 19 - RT-PCR testing processI attach "fact sheet" outlining issues with regard to the Covid-19 "Reverse Transcription - Polymerase Chain Reaction" [RT-PCR] testing process. I have continuing concerns that misleading information is being provided to Welsh Government ministers who appear to interpret a positive test result as a new Covid-19 infection. I would be grateful if you could carefully examine the content of the fact sheet and arrange to draw the issues to the attention of Welsh Government in order that informed decisions can be taken by ministers. Alternatively, if you wish to challenge the content I look forward to receiving a point by point rebuttal, supported by peer-reviewed medical papers. Serious damage is now being inflicted on the Welsh economy and national health service through economic lockdown with hospitals unable to operate in a normal manner with lengthening waiting lists for urgent treatments. It is therefore of paramount importance that ministers receive factually correct information regarding the RT-PCR testing process to inform ministerial decisions as this drives government policy and process and information provided by the "Office for National Statistics" and mainstream media [including the BBC]. FOI 519.pdf Final Response

Yes, when there were five, or ten or fifty schools, it would have been a confidentiality risk. But now that there are hundreds of schools and and hundreds of cases, the argument that the mere publication of numbers would risk personal identification is null and void.

 FOI 306 Transgender Screening I'm doing a project to help implement change within GP surgeries for transgender patients. For example, when transgender individuals register at their GP surgeries they often choose to register as their chosen gender not their actual biological sex. Would this cause issues with getting the correct screening letters? for example, I am transgender male ( female to male) that still has breasts and a cervix. However, I won't get called for a smear ( I'm 28 years old) or a breast exam ( I know wouldn't now till I'm 50) as I'm registered as a male at my GP surgery. My plan is to have more than one option on GP registration forms for biological sex and what organs one has left if they haven't had parts removed etc and also a option for what gender they want on letters or on the screen when they get called in for a appointment in their GP surgery. Hopefully, this makes sense. Has anything been implemented for this in wales? 306 Transgender Screening.pdf Final Response

 FOI 297 - CoronavirusMy FOI requests relates to risk levels and risk classification by UK public health authorities. I have frequently encountered the news that Public Health England (PHE) have elevated the risk level from the COVID-19 (also known as novel Coronavirus disease) outbreak from “low” to “moderate”. My questions are as following: (1) Does PHW share the opinion of PHE? (2) Has there been an occasion (incl. occasions unrelated to COVID-19) where the assessment by PHW differed from PHE’s? (3) Unfortunately, neither PHE nor the press have described how many different risk levels there are. Can you describe how many risk levels exist to describe the threat to the public? (4) If PHW’s usage of risk levels differs from PHE’s can you include a clear description of the difference? (5) Can you include the name of each risk level (e.g. “low”, “moderate” and so forth)? (6) Again, if names for risk levels in usage by PHW differ from those used by PHE, can you describe the difference? (7) Can you describe the advice to the public coupled to each risk level?

 FOI 214 - G5 Risks to healthMy request is with regard to the proposed 'rollout' of the next generation of 5G microwave wireless technology, and the likely impact/effects on the welsh population in terms of health implications. I have recently made a request to my local authority, namely Pembrokeshire council, who, i am disappointed to say, claim to have no information on this matter!, which based on the scale of this enterprise is frankly astonishing!. They have suggested that i address my concerns to yourselves?. Hence, my questions to you are as follows.... What studies/research (if any) have/will be undertaken, to determine the risks/implications to both human health, and indeed, the environment as a whole, prior to any rollout of this (highly controversial) technology?. This, i understand is a 'Class 1 Radiation,' with a 24-90 Gigahertz frequency, as opposed to the 1-5Gigahertz currently used by 2/3/4G technology. Claims would appear to suggest the installation of L.E.D street lights, these with 5G 'arrays' atop, and small 'cell stations' placed perhaps every two to eight homes in urban area's, due to the use of shorter 'millimeter waves' used by the 5G technology. This 'technology' is (i understand) a 'military grade' system, indeed, Brussels, the Belgian capital has recently announced it is not permitting the technology, based on their own research. Somewhat ironic, with the city containing both the European Commission and NATO HQ!. I appreciate your help/information in this matter, and look forward to your reply. 214 5G Risks to Health.docx Final Response
