Our Ref. FR06161

 

 

Dear Mr Wolkowski

 

Thank you for your email dated 18 May 2019, in which you ask for the
number of social workers who have been struck off for misconduct in public
office.

 

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA).

 

We are unable to provide you with the information you have requested as
the information is not held in an easily accessible format. In order to
provide you with a full response we would need to manually review all
fitness to practise cases for social workers where the registrant was
struck off because of misconduct to determine whether the registrant was
in public office at the time when the case was brought against them. This
would exceed the appropriate cost limit under Section 12 of the FOIA, that
being £450.

 

Staff time can be charged at £25 per hour, this equates to 18 hours before
the limit is met. We estimate that to access each case file and extract
the information you have requested would take 10 minutes per case. There
have been 222 cases brought against social workers where the registrant
was struck off because of misconduct. 222 multiplied by 10 minutes equates
to 37 hours, therefore exceeding the cost limit.
