Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

“Can you provide me with the date or dates email/telephone calls/meetings etc and any other information that the Scottish Government or The Safety Openness and Learning when they contacted the General Medical Council of Ireland (MCI) or the Irish Medical Council to gain information relating to Muftah Salem Eljamel relating to Mr Patrick Kelly?”


I attach a copy of the information you requested, you will find the information at Annex A.

However, you may wish to contact the Medical Council in Ireland at or +353 (01) 498 3196, they may also be able to help you.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption(s) under section(s) 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why that exemption applies is because it contains person identifiable information.
