Junior doctors rest periods, rota design/planning and other conditions: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/19/01375
Date received: 30 May 2019
Date responded: 27 Jun 2019
Information requested

You asked for information on implementing a minimum rest period of 46 hours after a period of night shift working, improved rest and catering facilities for those working out of hours, and improved rota design and planning as well as what work has been undertaken to explore flexibilities around the use of fixed annual leave.

Response

I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide the information you have requested on flexibilities around the use of fixed annual leave and improved rest and catering facilities for those working out of hours because an exemption under section s.29(1)(a) (policy formulation) of FOISA applies to that information.
