Disciplinary proceedings over NHS staff using social media or instant messaging apps

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust,

I am writing with a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I would like this information for the calendar year to date, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013.

Please can you tell me:

*How many people working at the trust have been subject to disciplinary proceedings for their use of instant messaging apps (e.g. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat)?

*How many people working at the trust have been subject to disciplinary proceedings for their use of social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)?

*Please tell me, for each case, the job title of the staff member concerned (e.g. junior doctor, consultant, nurse, administrative staff) and which sanctions were applied (e.g. dismissal, formal warning, referral to professional regulator).

I would prefer to receive the information electronically, and in either Excel or CSV format.

Should this request be likely to breach the costs limit set out in section 12 of the FOI Act, I would like the information for the most recent calendar years in turn, going backwards until the cost limit is reached.

Yours faithfully,

Kat Lay
