Would you please supply the following information:
1) The number of bronchial challenge tests requested and/or performed at the request of your Fire and Rescue Service during 2019 and 2021 for occupational health or other reasons
2) The providers of bronchial challenge testing to your Fire and Rescue Service (at which locations/sites/departments) for occupational health or other reasons
3) The chemical agent used for the test e.g. mannitol or methacholine (if known)
4) The contact details of the sites/departments performing the tests?
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service have not carried out any bronchial challenge testing in 2019 – 2021. This would have been very unlikely to have happened during this time due to the pandemic.
The Services Occupational Health Unit do not hold any records of such testing and if carried out records would have been kept.
