I write in response to your Official Information Act request, which we received on partial transfer from the Ministry of Health under section 14 of the Act on 24 September 2018.
You requested the following information on ECT Treatment Outcomes, and the Ministry of Health advised that they did not hold the information sought.
Three parts of your request were transferred by the Ministry of Health to all DHBs for a response:
• How many people were left brain damaged by ECT in the last 10 years in NZ?
• How many people have been followed up on after receiving ECT in NZ, to see if they have improved or become worse?
• How much does each ECT treatment cost in NZ?
Our response is attached
