Dear J Roberts,

Your information request – IR1-3180513829

Thank you for your email dated 16 August requesting full details of the MPT hearing that concluded on 16 June 2021 for Dr Ashish Dutta (GMC reference number 4089731). I have considered your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

I can't provide the information you requested as we're currently planning to publish the determination in the near future. Unfortunately, we are experiencing some delays in relation to publication, however, we are working to resolve these as soon as possible and we expect the determination to be published by approximately 6 October 2021. I have provided details of the relevant exemption below.

The exemption

Section 22 of the FOIA is the exemption which applies to information intended for future publication. This exemption is subject to a public interest test and I believe that the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

I'm sorry I couldn’t provide the information you requested. If you would like to appeal this decision please write to [GMC request email]. Please note that we will only usually consider appeals received within 40 working days of our response. You can also appeal to the Information Commissioner.

Yours sincerely
