Question

I am looking to understand NHS Scotland's overall spending on special contact lenses (i.e. used to treat any irregular cornea conditions).

How much has the NHS Scotland spend annually on contact lenses by product name (i.e. Kerasoft IC), supplier name (i.e. UltraVision)  and contact lens types (i.e. RGP, Soft etc) in the last 2 years covering 2016-2018?

Response

I can advise you that under section 17(1) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, that NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) does not hold the information requested.
