I write in response to your request under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act.

I confirm that the Trust holds the information you requested. Please see the replies, set out against your question, below.

Please provide the following information about the disciplinary cases under MHPS in your organisation for the financial year 2017/18:

Q1. The number of permanent and locum doctors employed by the Trust (headcount).

Permanent = 566, locum = 2

Q2. The number of concerns raised under MHPS by type of concern (the following is a suggested categorisation of the types of concern). Please allocate the cases to the most relevant type of concern.

 Doctor's health    
 Clinical competence    
 Conduct 10 10 
 Professional performance    


Q3. The outcome of formal investigations. Please provide the data on the outcome of formal investigations according to the following table:

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, Exemption section 40 (Personal Information) has been applied. Due to the low numbers invloved, 5 or fewer, we have witheld the exact numbers to protect the identities of individuals.

While the Trust acknowledges that it is desirable to make information as freely available as possible the release of this information would be unfair to the individuals concerned and would contravene the rights of the individual under the Data Protection Act.

Other cases are ongoing at this time.
