Information Act 1982 (the Act):
In reference to the request: GOV-012356
Please supply the report mentioned in this paragraph of the reply disclosed in the above-mentioned
"This memorandum refers to and includes a link to a report, the External Medical Panels Post
Implementation Review (June 2018). We have not included that report as it does not include ACC’s
recommendation to disestablish the Panel. Therefore, we do not consider that it is within the scope of
ACC needs extra time
The Act requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no later than 20 working days after the
day we received your request. Unfortunately, it wil not be possible to meet that time limit and we are
therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our decision, to 4 October 2021.
This extension is necessary because consultations to make a decision on your request are such that a
proper response cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit.
