Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

The Department recently published the updated version of the "AI Code of Conduct", following an initial text published in 2018 with a request for comment/feedback/discussions/etc. It can be found here:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

1) Please provide a list of all organisations who provided input in any form between September 2018 and February 2019;

2) Please provide a copy of all written submissions received (these would have been published routinely if DHSC had followed the norms for consultations, rather than running a shadow process).

Yours faithfully,
Phil Booth

Department of Health and Social Care

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Thank you for requesting clarification, and I hope this proves helpful.

You said:
1) can you clarify if you mean all organisations who provided official responses to the consultation via email?

It is common practice for a Government/NHS response to a consultation to include a list of organisations who responded to the consultation - it is that list we request (even if it was not by email, although we would expect that the majority of submissions were by email).

In case it is helpful to have an example of what we were requesting under this point, please see Appendix 1 of this NHS England consultation response (which simply happens to be the current top hit in google for relevant search terms): https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/survey...

2) may you clarify if you require all written submissions from organisations?

Yes.

For an excess of clarity, should a consultation response have been received by telephone or in a personal meeting have been considered received by the consultation, the organisation would be covered under part (1) but not included (2) (unless they provided a written submission as well).

We did not mean to include, for example, civil servants notes of meetings, requesting only material written by respondents which could entirely reasonably be expected to be in the public domain due to it being a response to a consultation by DHSC.

Yours faithfully,

Phil Booth

Department of Health and Social Care
