The complainant requested data regarding cancer treatments. University Hospital Plymouth NHS Foundation Trust initially withheld some information, relying on section 41 (breach of confidence) and section 40(2) of the FOIA (personal data) to do so, before later disclosing it. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Trust has disclosed the information it holds and has therefore complied with its duty under section 1(1) of the FOIA. However, as it failed to provide some of the information within 20 working days, the Trust breached section 10 of the FOIA. The Commissioner does not require any further steps.
