Freedom of Information Requests, General Dental Council

Dear Ms Greenland,

Thank you for your request for information.

Your request was received on 25 March 2019 and we are dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the FOI Act’).

You may find it helpful to access the information already available on our website. We routinely publish a report containing a variety of figures relating to registrants, including specialist list breakdowns by gender. You can access older reports with a key word search - https://www.gdc-uk.org/search?querytext=... or alternatively the newer reports are accessible on a single page - https://www.gdc-uk.org/about/who-we-are/....

You may be aware that under section 1(3) of the FOI Act, authorities are not obliged to answer a request where they reasonably require further information in order to identify and locate the information requested and have informed the requestor of that requirement. The date the clarification is provided will become the revised date of receipt of the requested information and you will then be advised of the 20 working day deadline by which you can expect to receive a response.

You refer to specialist lists in "dental public health" in your request, however, as we do not record whether a registrant is working in private or public practice, we would not be able to confirm whether these specialities were relating to private or public practice. To ensure we are capturing the relevant information in our searches, it would be helpful if you could please clarify that the reports above (a copy of which is attached for ease of reference) is the information you seek. The relevant table is entitled "Registrant's by speciality".

I look forward to receiving your clarification as to whether reports based on a registrant's title, but not narrowed by public or private practice.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Megan Hunt
Deputy Information Governance Manager
General Dental Council

Dear Ms Hunt,

Many thanks for the information on the report. yes the table 'registrants by specialty' is the exact information that I am after. If you could provide for each year from 2006 up to now that would be perfect. I've had a quick look on the website but I can only see back to 2014.

Thanks again,
Yours sincerely,

Deborah
