Dear Jimmi


Thank you for your email dated 21 September 2013, in which you request
information about doctors suspended or erased for disciplinary reasons in
2006, 2007 and 2008.


In response to your request please find attached a list of doctors Erased
for disciplinary reasons or suspended following a FTP hearing in the years
you enquire about.


You have also asked for the reasons for disciplinary action, I have
included the recorded hearing area which I hope you find useful, in
addition I have provided the GMC numbers for each of the doctors,  a
doctors public hearing minutes are available to download from their entry
on our List of Registered Medical Practitioners, here you will find
further detail of the hearing.


You will note some of the hearing areas have been blanked out, this is
because the hearing and/or sections of the hearing was held in private,
detail of the hearing area and the minutes relating to this private
hearing is exempt from disclosure, the exemption we believe applies is:


Section 40(2) by virtue of Section 40(3)(a)(i) – Personal Information.
This relates to information requested which is about a third party, and
the disclosure of which would be in breach of the Principles of the Data
Protection Act 1998 (DPA). In this instance we consider that the
disclosure of this type of information would breach the First Principle,
which requires that the processing of data is fair and lawful. We consider
that the conditions in Schedule 3 of the DPA, relating to the processing
of sensitive personal data, are not met and that, therefore, the release
of the information you have requested, would be unlawful.


In addition please note that ‘Not Recorded’ on the attached table
indicates where a field is blank on our computer system.


I hope the attached information is useful.


You can appeal against the refusal aspect of my decision to Julian Graves,
Information Access Manager. If you would like to do so, please set out why
you think the decision is incorrect in an email and send it to
[1][email address]


You can also appeal to the Information Commissioner, the regulator of the
FOIA– we can provide the contact details if you need them.


Kind regards
