Request Reference: 7712 Request Date: 25 May 2018
Request: I would like to make a request for the following information under the Freedom of Information Act: Please provide information on the number and average age when hospital doctors (Capacity Code 3, Employment Type 3) claimed their pension on the basis of age, early retirement, and ill health. Please provide this information each year from 2007/08 to 2017/18. [On 6 June 2018 you clarified the following:] Thanks for this. In essence, I''m interested in the data on all hospital doctors. I have the data for GPs and was advised that I should send an FOI request, with the wording I used, in order to obtain the correct data. I''m basically after the hospital doctor companion data to the GP data I have. In answer to your specific questions: 1. Question: "Your request is specifically for those with a capacity code 3 and employment type 3 (specialists) at retirement (i.e. their final NHS post) and not for NHS hospital doctors with a capacity code 3 and employment type 3 earlier in their NHS career?" Answer: Yes. I''m interested in doctors who are working as hospital doctors when they retire, rather than those who have become GPs or worked in another capacity. 2. Question: "Your request is specifically for doctors who were solely NHS hospital doctors with a capacity code 3 and employment type 3 at retirement and excludes those who may also have been a GP at retirement?" Answer: Yes. 3. Question: "Your request is specifically for those with a capacity code 3 and employment type 3 (specialists) not for NHS hospital doctors with a capacity code 3 and employment type 2 (non-specialists)?" Answer: No. I''m interested in all NHS hospital doctors. I was advised that "hospital doctors (Capacity Code 3, Employment Type 3)" was how hospital doctors were recorded in the relevant databases, which is why I asked for that specifically. If there are hospital doctors with other employment types, I would also like the data on those. I hope that clarifies what I am after. If not, please do let me know, or give me a call as I''d be happy to discuss which data I am seeking.
