Summary of official information request

Re response CDHB 10519 16/2/2021.  You advised that there were 1,658 terminations performed in 2020 at your boards facilities. I have recently been advised that the Ministry of Health informed the President of Voice for Life that the number of abortions performed at your facilities in 2020 totalled 1,613 there is a difference of 45 in the totals. I would be grateful if you could advise me promptly, which is the correct total?
