The group referred to is the Our Hospital Clinical and Operational Client Group (COCG). The names of COCG members have already been published in response to a previous FOI request and can be found in the following link and therefore Article 23 (Information accessible to applicant by other means) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
Our Hospital project group members (FOI)
The Interim Head of HR (HCS), Anne Robson was replaced by the Associate Director of People – Health, Steve Graham, on 21 Sept 2020.
Two of the less senior roles, where names were not provided under Article 25 (Personal information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law have also had a change of incumbent:
The Head of Finance Business Partnering changed on 17 February 2020
The Head of Communications for HCS changed on 1 June 2020.
Article 23: Information accessible to applicant by other means:
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it is reasonably available to the applicant, otherwise than under this law, whether or not free of charge.
(2) A scheduled public authority that refuses an application for the information on this ground must make reasonable efforts to inform the applicant where the applicant may obtain the information.
Article 25 Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
(3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
Article 25 is an absolute exemption, and therefore does not require a public interest test. However, whilst there appears to be limited public interest in the release of this data, it is noted that the roles where names have not been provided are less senior and the Government employees concerned would carry a reasonable expectation that this information would not be disclosed.
