    @ICOnews: Did you know you’re entitled to see comments made by examiner on your exam papers? http://t.co/FK7IeDSOEz #alevelresults

    What they won’t tell you is if refused to give you the papers. The ICO will do nothing, as they don’t look at individual complaints.

    By that I mean they are a worthless bunch of twits. Who do nothing but make a lot of noise.

    UPDATE

    The ICO has ‘reported’ it’s views on http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/infogov/codes/cop.

    The ICO have removed the “response” my guess they where embarrassed  by it.

    This is ‘my’ review.

    The Information Commissioner has responsibility for promoting and enforcing the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Environmental Information Regulations and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. He is independent from government and upholds information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. The Commissioner does this by providing guidance to individuals and organisations, solving problems where he can, and taking appropriate action where the law is broken.

    He however will not deal with individual complaints. No matter how the DPA was broken. By my Dr witting to my employer without my knowlage or permission.
    They also broke the FIO. By not providing all my medical records upon request.

    The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the HSCIC’s draft Code of practice on confidential information. As a number of the specific consultation questions relate to areas outside the ICO’s regulatory remit, this submission makes some general points only.
    ICO comments on the context in which the Code of practice on confidential information will apply
    The content of the Code of practice on confidential information is generally not something for the ICO to comment on as the regulator responsible for the DPA.

    Is the point of DPA not confidential information? and how it should be used?

    UPDATE

    Just got a email from the ICO, its quite funny…

    The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the UK’s independent body set up to promote public access to official information and protect your personal data. We enforce the Data Protection Act, Freedom of Information Act and Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations.

    When a Dr breached the DPA, by writing to my employer (without my knowlage or permission) the ICO did nothing
    When I complained about the DWPs handling of my FOI request the ICO did nothing

    Once could be a mistake twice is a pattern!
