2. How much money has the Trust spent on treating deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (blood clots) between January 1st 2018 and December 31st 2018?

The Trust is unable to provide the cost of treating deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (blood clots) between January 1st 2018 and December 31st 2018. This is because these patients were also treated for other diagnoses during their attendance or admission and it cannot separate these specific costs out.
