GPs need more help from PCOs to be ready for Freedom of Information Act, UK

"Feedback from Local Medical Committees (LMCs) on GPs' preparedness for the Act's implementation shows that some PCOs have been proactive in publicising the Act. However a number of GPs claim that the training provided by the PCOs has been unhelpful, or in some places non-existent, and some practices have not received any information concerning the Act from their PCO. In addition, many GPs, although having prepared their publication scheme, are still not aware of the full requirements of the Act and consider their duty ended with the production of a scheme"
