Independent Oversight and Assurance Group: FOI release

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

Information requested

  • A copy of the second quarterly report by the Independent Oversight and Assurance Group on Tayside mental health services that was published on 10 June 2022.
  • A copy of all reports, letters, emails and other documentation created in respect of the concerns regarding the accommodation at Strathmartine Centre including those forwarded, shared and received from NHS Tayside.


At Annex A I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested. Where the information you requested was published online, I have included links to the publications.

Exempt Information

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to some of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, ie names and contact details 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.
