The complainant has requested information relating to complaints about a named doctor and deaths statistics on a ward the named doctor was associated with. The Trust refused to confirm or deny whether some of the requested information was held, it withheld some of the requested information under section 40(2) FOIA and confirmed that it did not hold some of the requested information under section 1(1)(a) FOIA. The Commissioner considers that the Trust correctly applied the exemptions at section 40(2) and 40(5) FOIA and that on the balance of probabilities, the remaining information requested is not held by the Trust under section 1(1)(a) FOIA. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken.
