'The failings of Ian Clark Wilson, a cardiothoracic surgeon, have been discovered following an inquest into the deaths of three men he operated on.

Between September 2011 and September 2012, at least 15 patients Mr Wilson - who worked for the University Hospitals Birmingham Trust - performed surgery on passed away, the Telegraph reports.'

'25. Any variation of the requester’s title or first name combined with their surname (e.g. Mr Smith or John Smith) will be sufficient to meet this requirement. However, a first name or surname provided in isolation, or a set of initials, will not.

Example

A requester named Robert Jones could call themselves ‘Rob Jones’, ‘Bobby Jones’, ‘R Jones’, ‘Bob Jones’ or ‘Mr Jones’. However, they could not just use‘ Robert’, ‘Bob’, ‘Bobby’or ‘R.J’.

26. A combination of the requester’s middle names and surname will also be acceptable as this is simply another way of expressing their real name.'

Dear Mr Poullis

 

Thank you for your email dated 27 June, in which you request information
about Dr Ian Wilson (GMC Number: 2591159).

 

We are able to provide information about whether a doctor has any warnings
or restrictions on their GMC registration. We are also able to provide
information in relation to any publicly available Medical Practitioners
Tribunal (MPT) hearings in line with our [1]Publication and disclosure
policy .However, we cannot provide details of whether or not a doctor has
received any other complaints.

 

Publicly available information about a doctor’s registration is on our
List of Registered Medical Practitioners (LRMP), which can be found on our
website. The LRMP lets you check a doctor’s registration status and
publicly available information about their fitness to practise history. I
provide a link to Dr Wilson’s entry: [2]2591159

 

As you can see Dr Wilson is currently registered with a license to
practise and is on the Specialist Register , his registration is not
restricted and Dr Wilson is not subject to a warning. Additionally Dr
Wilson has not been the subject of any publicly available MPT hearings.
Information about Medical Practitioners Tribunals (MPT) can be found here:

[3]https://www.mpts-uk.org/hearing/medical_...

 

I am not able to confirm whether or not Dr Wilson has any other complaints
on his record. We believe it’s reasonable for doctors and complainants to
expect that complaints will be treated as confidential. If a case
progresses to a public hearing, or the doctor receives a sanction on their
registration, certain information may be made publicly available by the
GMC. Otherwise the information is treated as the confidential personal
data of the doctor and other parties involved. I’ve given details of the
exemption under the FOIA which applies below.

 

The exemption

 

Section 40(5B)(a)(i) of the FOIA applies where the information, if held,
would be the personal data of a third party and where confirming whether
it’s held would breach any of the principles relating to the processing of
personal data listed at Article 5 of the GDPR.  I believe that to publicly
confirm or deny whether we hold the information would breach the first
principle, which requires that the processing of personal data is fair,
lawful and transparent. I do not believe that any of the legal bases for
processing listed at Article 6 of the GDPR are met and therefore giving
you the information would be unlawful.

 

Your right to appeal

 

You can appeal against my decision to the Information Access Manager. If
you would like to do so, please set out why you think the decision is
incorrect in an email and send it to [4][GMC request email]

 

You can also appeal to the Information Commissioner, the regulator of the
FOIA – we can provide more details about this if you need them.

 

Kind regards

 

Louise
