Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear General Medical Council,

Please could you supply me with the name of the Director of GMC Legal with a copy of the structure chart for that current organisation.

The General Medical Council has previously provided in 2010, under an FOIA request, an organogram of GMC Legal up to the level of Assistant Director.

According to a senior lawyer and manager, GMC Legal are the solicitors to the GMC, carrying out the majority of the GMC's legal work, including:

- providing legal advice and assistance to all Directorates within the GMC, primarily the Fitness to Practise Directorate and the Registration and Revalidation Directorate;

- conducting proceedings on behalf of the GMC before Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) Fitness to Practice Panels, Interim Orders Panels, GMC Registration Appeals Panels and the GMC Investigation Committee;

- conducting litigation on behalf of the GMC before the courts in the several jurisdictions of the United Kingdom and overseas.

The Professional Standards Authority is responsible for overseeing the General Medical Council, having oversight and scrutiny of the regulator for protecting users of that public body including auditing of the regulator’s fitness to practise processes and financial arrangements.

Yours faithfully,

Dr David Waghorn

FOI, General Medical Council
