Sadie Jones (0161 250 6889), General Medical Council

Dear Mr Li

 

Your information access request – F19/10346/SJ

 

Thank you for your email dated 25 August asking for information about
doctors who have applied for voluntary erasure whilst under fitness to
practise investigation by the GMC. I’ve considered your request under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

 

I can confirm that 581 doctors applied for voluntary erasure whilst under
a fitness to practise investigation between 1 January 2014 and the 31 July
2019. Of those doctors, 403 were granted voluntary erasure. Please note
that some of these doctors may have submitted more than one application
during this period.

 

I can’t provide you with a list of the doctors who were refused voluntary
erasure whilst under a fitness to practise investigation, because it would
breach data protection legislation to give this to you. We believe that it
is reasonable for doctors to expect that this information is treated as
confidential. I’ve given details of the exemption of the FOIA which
applies below.

 

The exemption

 

Section 40(2), by virtue of section 40(3A)(a)

 

This exemption applies where the information is the personal data of a
third party and where releasing the information would breach any of the
principles relating to the processing of personal data listed at Article 5
of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In this instance
disclosure would breach the first principle, which requires the processing
of information to be lawful, fair 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

 

I'm sorry I couldn’t provide all the information you requested. If you
would like to appeal this decision to Julian Graves, Information Access
Manager, please set out your reasons in writing to
[1][GMC request email]. Please note that we will only usually consider appeals
received within 40 working days of our response. You can also appeal to
the [2]Information Commissioner, the regulator of the FOIA and DPA.

 

Yours sincerely

Sadie Jones
