'Risk register' must be kept secret

6th March 2012

The head of the Department of Health has said that a “risk register” of potential dangers posed by the Government’s NHS reforms would be taken out of context if it was published.

Giving evidence to an Information Tribunal Una O'Brien, the Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health, said the register was meant as an internal document to aid policy development, and not for public eyes. The department is appealing a decision by the Information Commissioner that it should publish the contents of the risk register.
