Telford and Wrekin Council (Local Government (District Council)): ICO 24 Aug 2017

The complainant made a number of freedom of information requests to the Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (‘the CCG’) for information regarding Gender Reassignment Surgery. The CCG initially said that the requested information was not held and told the complainant to redirect her request to NHS England. However, during the course of the Commissioner’s investigation it identified some further information and disclosed this to the complainant. The Commissioner’s decision is that the University breached section 10 in its handling of the complainant’s request but she is satisfied that it has now disclosed all of the information it holds and so she requires no steps to be taken.
FOI 1: Not upheld FOI 10: Upheld
