Dear FOI Team Mailbox,
From your response, I understand that a PHSO QP is a specific job designation, rather than a named person.
Could you confirm that this is the case?
Dear FOI Team Mailbox,
My understanding is now that if the specific job title is changed, then a new QP would have to be appointed.
