EU Exit information circulated with NHS Boards: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/19/02215
Date received: 26 Sep 2019
Date responded: 5 Nov 2019
Information requested

You asked for:

  • Latest Scottish Government EU Exit planning assumptions circulated to NHS Boards.
  • Latest EU Exit impact, risk and readiness assessments received from NHS Boards.
Response

For your first request, the Scottish Government EU Exit planning assumptions were published on 8 October and are available at: https://www.gov.scot/publications/scottish-government-overview-no-deal-preparations/

For your second request, I enclose a copy of the information you requested and this is contained in documents 1 to 22.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to a small amount of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. names of individuals, and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018. This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
