Dear Mr Withington,

Thank you for your recent communication which is being managed in line
with the Freedom of Information Act under the above reference number.  The
details of your request are outlined below together with the council’s
response.

Your request

Can you please provide me with an organisational structure chart for
adults social care and public health directorates, that includes the names
and job titles for the following positions:

Team Managers.
Service Managers.
Heads of Service.
Assistant Director's.
Director's.
CEO's.

Please can this include and cover all aspects of operational, strategic
and commissioning specialisms.

Our Response

Unfortunately we are unable to provide in full the information you have
requested.  We do hold the information but an absolute exemption applies. 
Personal Information (Section 40,2)

Personal data of any other person (third party data) is exempt under
section 40(2) if disclosure would breach one of the data protection
principles. This aspect of Section 40 is an Absolute Exemption and is
therefore not subject to the Public Interest Test.

The names of officers working for the Council is personal data specific to
them. It is therefore subject to the provisions of the Data Protection
Act. Information can be withheld if its disclosure would be likely to
breach one or more of the Principles of the Data Protection Act. There is
no prior expectation on the part of Team Managers (or other officers
working below the level of Director) that their names and job titles /
positions would be published into the wider public domain under FOI. A
disclosure made under FOI constitutes a publication to the world at large.
We believe that to disclose this would be likely to breach the first
Principle of the Data Protection Act by unfairly contravening their right
to privacy and confidentiality in the work place.

However, in the interests of transparency we are able to share details
relating to senior officers (Director level and above). For these
officers, there is already a greater expectation of openness about their
role given their level of accountability for service provision and
budgetary decision making.

For your information please see the below link which outlines staff
details of Assistant Director level and above:

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which the council have managed
your request you can pursue an independent review by contacting us at the
above address and your request will be considered by the Information
Manager who will update you with the outcome. 

You may also wish to refer your case to the Information Commissioner’s
Office, details of this organisation can be found at [2]www.ico.org.uk .
Alternatively they can be contacted on 0303 123 1113.

 

 

Many thanks
