Dear General Medical Council,

I refer to a previous FOIA query which can be found at:
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/fi...
and to the evidence of public interest supplied for Information Tribunal case EA/2009/0063.

1)

Of the 57 private hearings where Mr Brightmore sat on the Fitness to Practise Panel, how many concerned psychiatrists, psychiatric medicine, psychology or related mental health fields?

2)

Which of the public hearings concerned those fields of medicine?

Many thanks for your assistance with this matter.

Yours faithfully,

William Thackeray
