Resent at the GMC's request as they didn't get the first one (our logs show that it go as far as their mail server).

The GMC have been in touch with us to say they are:

"having problems getting this request through our security measures"

They have requested we edit it and try sending it again; I've not done that but I have let them know the email address associated with the request so they can provide a reply.

Dear General Medical Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of General Medical Council's handling of my FOI request 'Medical Advice on Anal Sex'.

I can't believe the General Medical Council have never given health advice on anal sex - please check and verify.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

Yours faithfully,

Sean Moran

Dear Mr Moran

 

Further to your request for a review of our response, I am extremely sorry
for the substantial delay in responding to you.

 

The GMC has four main functions:

 

·         Keeping up-to-date registers of qualified doctors.

·         Fostering good medical practice.

·         Promoting high standards of medical education and training.

·         Dealing firmly and fairly with doctors whose fitness to practise
is in doubt.

 

We are not responsible for providing health advice on any topic. I am
therefore satisfied that the response provided by my colleague Mark Ellen
was accurate.

 

Should you remain dissatisfied with my response, you do, as you are aware,
have the right of complaint to the Information Commissioner, the regulator
of the DPA and the FOIA. Their contact details are as follows:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office

Wycliffe House

Water Lane
