Dear Mr Sloan

 

Thank you for your request received on 3 October 2015 for the provision of
information on Approved Medical Practitioners.

 

We are treating your request under our procedures for responding to
requests for information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002 (FOISA).

 

I can confirm that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) holds some of
the information as described by you.

 

Below are the questions you asked and NHSGGC’s response in italics and
bold.

 

(1)    Section 22 of the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act
2003 requires the Greater Glasgow NHS Board to compile and maintain a list
of approved medical practitioners, please provide the number of persons on
that list;

    [As at October 2015 there are 332 Approved Medical Practitioners
(AMPs) in NHSGGC.  For information I attach a copy of all AMPs in Scottish
Health Boards.  Pages 9 to 19 relate to NHSGGC].

 

(2)    of the number of persons in (1) above how many are on the GP
register

          [NHSGGC does not hold information on whether the AMPs are on the
GP register, therefore, under Section 17 of the FOlSA, I am required to
tell you that NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde does not hold the information
which you are seeking.  Information on the GP register is available on the
GMC website at:  [1]http://www.gmc-uk.org/doctors/register/L...

 

I hope this information is helpful.  If you are not satisfied with our
response to your request, you have a right to request a review of this
decision within 40 working days of receiving this response.  The procedure
for consideration of a review is detailed in the attached note.  The note
also describes your right to pursue the matter with the Scottish
Information Commissioner if, following a request for review, you remain
dissatisfied with the decision of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  If
following appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner you still remain
dissatisfied with the outcome, you have a right of appeal to the Court of
Session on a point of law against the decision of the Scottish Information
Commissioner.

 

If you wish us to review this decision, please complete the form enclosed
and return it to the Head of Board Administration, NHS Greater Glasgow and
Clyde, Corporate HQ, J B Russell House, Gartnavel Royal Hospital, 1055
