Full list of those registered on the Specialist Register

The request was successful.

Dear General Medical Council,

Please provide a list of ALL Names of those who are registered in England as specialists on the Specialist Register, along with their stated specialism.

My previous request's response from the GMC (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...) appears to contain significant omissions.

For example - (Taken from the GMC online search function) Dr. Sanjay Agrawal GMC #5204374 - Status: Registered with a licence to practise; this doctor is on the Specialist Register

This Specialist Doctor who the GMC show as being on the specialist register is not contained within the response document provided previously. In fact, the previous reply document shows a total of 4,284 individuals, all with first names beginning with the letter 'A'.

I find it hard to believe every specialist in the UK happens to have a name beginning with 'A'. Perhaps you would be so kind as to send the data as requested, and not just the 'A' section.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. P Austin

Dear P Austin,

Thank you for your email. I can confirm that the attachment that I sent to you did contain ALL doctors on the specialist register however because the document was quite large it seems as though the attachment hasn’t come through to you in its entirety. Please leave this with me and I will come back to you as soon as possible with a solution so we can get the whole list to you.

Kind regards

Dear Lauren,

Thank you for your assistance. I figured some form of error was responsible. I would be happy to accept a plaintext csv if this makes things easier for you. Should this not be possible, if there is a means I can contact you on in order to provide a private email address I would be happy to do so.

Yours sincerely,

P Austin

Dear P Austin,

Thank you for your reply. I have spoken with our IS department and I can arrange a secure file transfer to you which will ensure you received the whole document however we would need to do this via a private email address.

If you are happy for me to arrange this please could you email me directly from your private email address and I will continue our correspondence via that email rather than through what do they know.

Kind regards

Dear GMC/Reader,

Updating this request for posterity..

The data has been supplied in full as requested (thank you very much Lauren and GMC). Due to complications with posting the file locally, a hard copy was sent privately.

Yours sincerely,
