Our reference: F17/9228/LG

 

Dear Mrs Barnett

 

Thank you for your email dated 7 November 2017, in which you request
information about Dr Srivinas Rao Dharmana (GMC Number: 5185884).

 

Publically available information about a doctor’s registration is on our
List of Registered Medical Practitioners (LRMP), which can be found on our
website: [1]www.gmc-uk.org

 

The LRMP lets you check a doctor’s registration status and information
about a doctor’s fitness to practise history from October 2005. The tab
‘doctor history’ will list the doctors fitness to practise history, and
contain any publically available hearing minutes.

 

Regarding information prior to October 2005, I can confirm that there was
no action on Dr Srivinas Rao Dharmana’s   registration prior to 2005.

 

I can’t confirm whether we hold information about any other complaints
regarding Dr Srivinas Rao Dharmana because it would breach the Data
Protection Act 1998 (DPA) to do so.

 

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(5)(b)(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 principle of the DPA.  I believe that to
publicly confirm or deny whether we hold the information would breach the
first principle of the DPA, which requires that the processing of personal
data is fair and lawful. I believe the conditions in Schedule 2 of the
DPA, which are about the processing of personal information, are not 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. You can
appeal against this decision to Julian Graves, Information Access Manager.
 If you want to appeal, please set out your reasons and email
[2][email address]

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
