Dear Mr Stevens

 

RE: Freedom of Information Request

 

We refer to your email of 24 February 2019 requesting information relating
to dentistry, held by Health Education England (HEE). 

 

Response

 

HEE can confirm in accordance with S.1 (1) of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 (FOIA) that we do hold the information that you have requested,
and can release some of this to you.

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet containing the names and addresses of
the dental practices offering Dental Foundation Training in the HEE
geographical area of Yorkshire and the Humber.

 

Please visit our website for further details of work in HEE’s regions:

Please note that although we also hold the names of the trainers, we
consider that this information, which identifies individuals, is exempt
under Section 40 of the FOI Act, and has therefore been removed.

 

Section 40 (2) applies to third party personal data and is exempt from
disclosure under the FOIA if disclosure would breach any of the data
protection principles contained within the Data Protection Act 2018
(DPA).  Such information would not be released under the FOIA unless there
is a strong public interest.  

 

One of the main differences between the FOIA and the DPA is that any
information released under the FOIA is released into the public domain,
not just the individual requesting the information and disclosure under
the Act must be made with that in mind. As such, any release that
identifies an individual through releasing their personal data, even third
party personal data, is exempt. 

 

All persons whose personal data is processed by HEE, regardless of whether
they be staff, trainees or members of the public, have an intrinsic right
to privacy and these rights are protected by virtue of the DPA. Release of
the information subject to the exemption is likely to compromise those
rights. 

 

The Section 40 exemption is an absolute exemption. This therefore means
that it is not necessary to carry out a public interest test.  

 

It is our view that Section 40 (2) is engaged because the persons
concerned are likely to be identified by the disclosure of the information
in its entirety. Such a disclosure would be a breach of Principle One of
the DPA. Individuals, trainees and members of staff can expect HEE to
secure their personal information and only process their personal
information in line with the principles contained within the DPA.

 

We hope that this information is of use.  If you are dissatisfied with the
way in which we have dealt with your request you can ask us to review our
decision by writing to:

 

Mr Lee Whitehead

Director of People and Communications

Health Education England

2 - 4 Victoria House,

Capital Park,

Fulbourn,

Cambridge

CB21 5XB

 

If at the conclusion of any review you remain dissatisfied you may
complain to the Information Commissioner who can be contacted at:

 

The Office of the Information Commissioner
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Wilmslow
Cheshire

Best wishes
