You need to provide a proper name to make a legal request.

You may need to define 'GMC members' because clearly as a regulator registered GMC doctors are not members and the GMC does not serve the interests of doctors or represent them which was its original purpose. Better to reply now, add the information so the GMC cannot reject it.

I have actually made a separate request about GMC-staff membership interests in other organisations and bodies. This is a large mess of an organisation where the right and left hand do not see eye to eye or know what they are doing. Hence membership and interests should be declared and registered in a publicly available register, especially if their is a conflict of interest i.e. board member on pharmaceutical company and looking into cases that can be seen to be protecting their interests.

The irony here is that the GMC have explored doing that for doctors but not themselves.

FOI, General Medical Council

Dear C Nazareth,

 

In accordance with Section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA we require your full name
in order to progress with your request.

 

The ICO’s guidance on Section 8 states that:

‘For a request to be valid, the requester must provide enough of their
real name to give anyone reading that request a reasonable indication of
their identity.

This means that if the staff processing the request cannot identify the
requester from the name provided, that request will be invalid.’

We have reason to believe that ‘C Nazareth’ is not your real name and
therefore unless you can prove otherwise your request will be regarded as
invalid and we will not respond to you further on this.

 

You do have a further right of complaint about our response to the ICO.

Dear S Ali,

In reply to your answer
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

every one knows that GMC is a conflicted & compromised ( in addition to being bigoted & racist). I am taken aback by their obsession with my name. Have they ever asked your full name?

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,

From the link kindly provided above in the annotation by Dr S Ali I can see that your chair Clare Marx 'declares' the following interests:

"Dame Clare Marx (GMC Ref No: 2387293) - Chair
A list of organisations Dame Clare Marx has held positions at.
Organisation
Position
Royal College of Surgeons England Fellow (former President)
British Orthopaedic Association Honorary Fellow (former President)
Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh Fellow
Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow Honorary Fellow
Royal College of Physicians Fellow
Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh Fellow
Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management Senior Fellow (former Chair)
Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Honorary Fellow
American College of Surgeons Honorary Fellow
British Palawan Trust Trustee
Exeter University Honorary Doctorate of Science 2017
Leeds University Honorary Doctorate of Medicine 2018
Bristol University Honorary Doctorate of Science 2019
Royal College of Psychiatrists Honorary Fellow
Academy of Medical Educators
Honorary Fellow"

While this list may be true it is no more than a marketing tactic of honorary positions that Clare Marx is not remunerated for. It discloses nothing about your chair's competing interests. I will ask you once again therefore to please disclose your council & executive committee's conflicts of interest.

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI of the GMC ,

I have given you my name & under the FOI Act need give you no further proof of identity. Even if you refuse to believe me, what does it have to do with you misleading the public about conflicts of interest, prejudices & biases of GMC council & committee members? The information on the GMC site contains nothing about commercial or other arrangements. It only advertises about how "qualified" council members & executive committee are.

When your lies are exposed & bluff called you resort to ad hominem attacks on my personality. That once again confirms your abuse & corruption. Also why are the panelists not mentioned won the GMC web-site?

Yours sincerely,

Colin Nazareth
