Dear Louise W

 

Reference: IAT/ME/F17/8906 – Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA)

 

Thank you for your e-mail in which you ask for a list of all doctors
suspended or erased from 1 January 2000 until 1 January 2008. 

 

Our electronic case management system was introduced in 2006 and so the
data we have available for the period before then is not complete. There
is an exemption set out in the FOIA that relates to the cost of attempting
to retrieve the information you have asked for in respect of the years
2000-2005. However, if there is some specific information you would like
from this period I would be happy to see if I can locate this for you. 

I am attaching a list of doctors who were suspended and a list of those
erased, in 2006 and 2007, following a fitness to practise panel hearing.

 

I hope that the information I am able to provide is of some help. Please
let me know if you require any further information. 

 

 

Kind regards

Mark Ellen

It might be helpful to ask another question about how many of these were reinstated subsequently. It tends to be the norm for doctors to be reinstated after a time no matter how serious their failures.
