Evidence From Campaign for Freedom of Information
We fully agree with the attached evidence submitted by, The Campaign For Freedom Of Information.
The Governments Health and Social Care Bill which will establish a, Health Services Safety Investigations Body, Which will be exempt from FOI. Which will result in a complete lack of scrutiny. The Government also plans to make Whistleblowing about this authorities failures or coverups a criminal offence. That such an organisation can operate in full secrecy says much about how it intends to operate. At a time when concerns about regulators have never been more widespread, highlighting unprecedented levels of complacency, indifference and incompetance, the governments answer is " Make sure no one finds out about the failures"
